A perfect autumn was the perfect ingredient for the May meeting of the Parkes Garden Club held at Norma and Barry Garment's park-like garden in Tanks Lane, Parkes.

The theme of the meeting was 'Pick and Pot' where members were able to wander around the garden and take cuttings from the wide array of plants, generously made available by the garments.

The hosts also provided everything needed to pot the chosen plants.

Members were encouraged to take something for themselves and also nurture some plants for the Garden Club stall being held in conjunction with Que Club's Gardens and Galleries event in October.

Roses and chrysanthemums were in abundance for the Flower of the Month competition and in a close decision, Anne Wright's beautiful Melinda Gainsford rose was judged best on the day.
