Scotland’s Garden Scheme Open Day at Inchmarlo

I was there on Sunday the 21st of May since we opened our gardens once again under Scotland’s Garden Scheme with the two charities selected, as usual, the Forget Me Not Club Banchory and Alzheimer’s Scotland. It was a nice day, unfortunately, the sun wasn’t shining but never-the-less it was warm and lots of people came to view the gardens. Despite the fact I am sitting next to the Bar sign, I can tell you I didn’t have any alcoholic drinks.

Mummy and I walked up through the Alpine Garden then on to the Rainbow Garden and the Sensory Garden which was designed by primary school pupils from Keig School in 2012 in a competition in conjunction with the Press & Journal.

Many visitors went into the Dining Room and Bar for afternoon tea, except me! I think it’s a bit unfair but the rule is I cannot go into any room in the house when food is being served.

We had quite a number of children visiting and a few of them came up to speak to me. I gave one little boy my business card and there is a photograph of him holding it.
