Boambee and The Lakes Estate - September 2015 Outing

The CHGC membership that attended this outing were extremely limited however for those that did attend the preparation that garden owners and maintainers Brenda and Les did to prepare for our visit was really appreciated.

The day was very overcast and inclined to drizzle a little bit but this did not dampen our enthusiasm of looking at wonderful garden spaces. This water feature which Les (pictured above) had dug out to an incredible depth was just lovely - the fish looked quite happy hiding under the large lily leaves.

These vegetable plots are individually attended by the residents who live in The Lakes Estate and very flourishing they were too. Bill proudly showed us both this area and the street scape of the Village.

The gardens were looking just stunning and we took time out to visit a Spring Garden Competition award winning courtyard garden too - picture above.

Thanks have to go to the Program Committee - Pat, Jane and Sue who organised these visits. The Lakes Estate allowed us to sit in the most wonderful surroundings to enjoy our picnic lunch.

The next CHGC outing is to the Grafton Jacaranda Festival on 2 November.
