Two country gardens are open in the Fens for The National Gardens Scheme which raises money for charity.
One is in Wisbech St Mary and one at Walton Highway where visitors can enjoy looking around the gardens and afterwards have refreshments all to bring in funds for good causes.
The Wisbech St Mary home is at Clear View, Cross Lane, where Margaret and Graham Rickard have created a haven for wildlife in their 1½ acre garden. Meadow, lake and orchard are alive with singing birds and busy insects. The borders, with many old fashioned plants, are full of colour and scent.
The garden is open on Saturday and Sunday May 30 and 31 from 10.30am-5.30pm. Admission £3. Home-made teas available.
