Edington and District Gardening Club October news

The intriguing talk ‘Crayfish on the lawn’ showed us how gardeners see more than most in the garden when down on our hands and knees! Together with lovely slides, Joff showed us what an eclectic variety there is to be seen especially at ground level. Not just beautiful combinations of flowers but also the moths, beetles, fasciations, snails, and fungi. We were treated to a poem by Pam Ayres about ‘The Last Hedgehog’, spoken by Pam Ayres herself (Joff tends her garden!). Yes, we did also see a crayfish on the lawn, one of the invasive American varieties, probably dropped by a passing bird!

Enjoy the last of the late summer sunshine,
