Gardens in Redbourn will be made open to the public this month to raise money for planting schemes around the village.

The Redbourn Open Gardens event, which is held every other year, will be held on Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17, with 27 gardens open to members of the public.

Some gardens will serve refreshments and hold charity stalls, and Redbourn Museum will host an affordable art sale.

The event is organised by Redbourn in Bloom, and all the proceeds will go towards planting schemes. St Mary’s Church grounds and Cumberland Gardens will also be open.

Programmes can be bought in advance from the Hertfordshire Garden Centre in Redding Lane, as well as from Redbourn Library and various village shops.

They cost £4.50 in advance, or £5 if purchased on the weekend from the museum or any participating garden, with accompanied children going in for free.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
