AMBLESIDE U3a MEETING

"Small Hebridean Islands - In a Small Boat"
Apparently, a record audience of around 108, assembled in the wonderful Marchesi Centre, Holly Road, Windermere, for the above talk. Hopefully it was enjoyed by all.

I'd spent an hour and a half in the walled garden at Holehird Gardens, the home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society, and the heady aroma provided by the Daphne, the Mahonia, the Hamamelis, and the hundreds of early Snowdrops, was phenomenal, even at this early time of the year.
I'd gone deliberately to see if I could get some material to add to my talk "Yes, We have no Galanthus", a story of the humble Snowdrop. I'll be returning next month when they reach their peak.
