Inchmarlo Open Day

Sunday 19 October was our Open Day. I spent most of the day walking around checking on the gardens, looking at the gorgeous colours before going to supervise the visitors buying tickets. We were busier than we thought and had different people selling the entrance tickets this year, Phyllis was away on holiday so Helen, our Deputy Manager Head of Care was assisted by Andi Bond from Scotland’s Gardens Scheme.  The monies collected was split between the Forget-me-not Club, Banchory and Scotland’s Gardens Scheme beneficiaries.

In the morning, the sun was gorgeous and Inchmarlo House looked beautiful nestled as it was in the sunshine.

The view from the front door of Inchmarlo House across our parkland was quite stunning – oh lucky Residents who see the changing colours throughout the year.

We walked up to the Courtyard, everything was looking lovely and I particularly liked the view through the gate.

My favourite view.

After we walked round Westfield, we met the photographer from the Press & Journal who asked where the Oriental Garden was, so I led the way and when we got there he took photographs of two of the visitors, Jim and Jenny Fiddes.

Then we went up into the Alpine Garden and oh my goodness, even I who only like flowers when I can smell other dogs near them, was overpowered by the fantastic autumnal colours.P1060495

Then I saw two couples sitting together and I went up and spoke to them and we had a nice chat.

We went through the Rainbow Garden where there was quite a number of people looking at the different plants.
