Visit to Belhaven Community Garden – 28 March 2019

Lovely afternoon at Belhaven Community Garden for the first of our seasonal visits.  Beautiful afternoon, great company (as well as delicious scones – thank you Lucy).  Weather so good that we were able to spend most of the time walking in the gardens, taking in all the new growth and checking out the new plants in the poly tunnel.
