Out and About with Ruth:
Went to Merle Rook's talk last night - she has so many stories of her life with Tony (with asides from he man himself and their daughter Sylvia) that everyone was enthralled. Some lovely pics of them when much younger as well as more recent ones.
The previous evening we went to the two Open Gardens - very different in size - the first one in Norman Road is absolutely brimming with plants and has winding paths and hidden areas so you can't see any houses around, which is amazing; the other, in Elmore Avenue, is maturing with shrubs round the lawn, seating areas and wonderful raised beds with veggies.
Looking forward to the Barn Dance tomorrow - drinks are BYO, which isn't mentioned in the programme. IF ANYONE IS THINKING OF COMING, PLEASE ORDER YOUR TICKETS ASAP as we need to order the fish & chips! Call Jane Hawkes on Welwyn 840224.
