June 2015 Meeting

Our June meeting was a talk onJapanese Gardens
We had  talk by David Burgess telling us the history of gardens in Japan and the thought behind the designs. The gravel,moss and rock gardens and the symbolism of the turtle and the crane in the materials used. The influence of the Shogun and the Shinto religion on gardens and the basics of their landscaping

A few trees were brought along for our tree of the month competition , sadly our photographers battery died on him, I know how that feels Bill, so only a few were captured for posterity that evening

However the winners were in the Advanced Class Brian C’s Hornbeam
and in the Novices Michael  C’s Silver Birch
