Open Garden for Breast Cancer

It’s that time of the year when gardeners are out and about looking for something special to add to their collections. This Sunday I am heading to the Huge Plant Sale in Lane Cove, a twice yearly event that I wrote about in April:

Life is But This 命

Ang, Ben and I went to a charity plant sale in aid of breast cancer research at Lane Cove today.  The best of its type:  it was held at a private home.  You can see the full grown flowers and shrubs in the garden and buy plants propagated from them.

The Propagating Gardeners. Keith and Maureene raise money for charity each year by working year round to produce thousands of pot plants from hundreds of  varieties in their garden.
