Despite drizzle, mizzle & downpours, opening Trinity College’s Fellows’ Garden as part of the National Garden Scheme raised £506 for charity.
For the 64th year, the Fellows’ Garden opened to the public – with 88 visitors braving the inclement weather.
Trinity’s Gardens Department rallied together, turning their break room into bijoux café where welly-clad visitors took shelter from the rain.
Acting Deputy Head Gardener, Karen Wells, said:
Once dampened spirits were restored with hot drinks and homemade cakes, they splashed their way around the garden with determined horticultural curiosity. Cherry blossom, a carpet of anemones and the new planting of the Fellows’ Garden Octagon shone through the soggy afternoon, with lots of positive feedback given.
