In addition to the traditional Bring & Buy Sale, we had a Harvest Quiz, an idea from Sheila, which involved tasting a variety of dishes brought in my members to determine the ingredients. Although the final scores were not very high, everyone enjoyed tasting the cakes, jams, soup and savoury dishes.
|Congratulation to Caroline for First Prize|

Members brought in loads of flowers and foliage from their gardens, which just goes to show that there is still plenty to see in mid-October.
|Kate brought a bunch of different coloured berries include pyracantha (orange), snowberry (white) and Profusion (purple).|
Gill showed us Japanese anemone, purple salvia Amistad, various asters including Sapphire, erigeron, phlox, hydrangeas, helenium beauty, corydalis, a tender fuchsia, eupatorium rugosum, potentilla monarch velvet and clematis.
If you are interested in visiting the gardens at Attadale and Inverewe, there are still a few places on a trip that Dorothy has organised leaving 16th May with National Coaches, Monday – Friday and staying in a luxury hotel http://strathpefferhotel.co.uk for £250.
