My garden is photogenic. It looks good in picturesWhich is both a good and a bad thing because it does not always look as spry in the cold light of day. And since I stopped spraying with insecticides...well let's just say I'm losing the battle with the wilderbeasts. Sometimes after a long season of rain, I can only see the bare spots where I've lost my grass, or the acalypha that have been ravaged by the batchacs. And after weeks of torrential rain, I was on the verge of handing out snorkels and flippers when the Garden Club of Trinidad arrived to visit yesterday morning. It is always a pleasure to host this club because they are a group of very good gardeners; stalwarts such as Sandy Gibson with his remarkable orchid knowledge;Peter Moll from San Antonio Farms and his wife Chancy, who is a very able president amd who makes presenting look like a walk in the park.You can ask questions about particular problems that you may be having with a difficult plant.
Her daughter Jeannine is the artist and the solid production manager of the Club's annual and much anticipated Calendar - Gardening In Trinidad.
