Open Garden Bonanza – Dec. 2010

The 2010 Boolarra Open Garden Bonanza was held on a lovely Spring day and was once again very successful. The gardeners had been under pressure because the inclement weather had hindered preparation. We were fortunate to have a fine day as the forecast rain held off.
More than 300 visited the eight open gardens and many commented positively on the gardens they saw. The sausage sizzle, Devonshire teas in the Hall and tea and coffee in Joan Collins’ garden and the school plant sale were also well patronized and raised funds for various community groups.
Picnickers enjoyed the shady trees at Joan’s and it was great to see the town so busy. Our special thanks to Jill Simmonds, and John too, for all the organization. We wish Jill a speedy recovery from knee surgery and hope she is back gardening soon.
