Some pictures of a private garden owned by Surry City Council. Sorry, Surrey Vancouver! Last weekend our garden club went on one of our organised trips to Canada for a docent led tour of this garden in the Fraser valley which is not open to the public, a very warm spot. Pity the docent didn’t know her stuff, not very knowledgeable about the species, poor lady just her luck to pull a garden club rather than any old disparate bunch! A lovely day, an excellent lunch and a walk around an arboretum in the afternoon and no aggravation at the border. The border guards always seem to have real trouble with the fact that people actually go across International borders to see gardens, seem incapable of actually getting their heads round it conceptually and asking stupid questions like why!
