Open garden for charity

With the onset of the days finally turning warm and sunny, we can at last feel the burst of spring and summertime approaching. Even with the severe lack of winter rains the gardens are showing us a wonderful spring time burst. Helen and Dean Rodda at Camelot Garden Stroll have been busy through the winter preparing and maintaining their garden in readiness to showcase it to the public once again during their annual open garden.

For the garden lovers their property holds a variety of cottage flowers, manicured lawns, roses and very established trees including, weeping mulberries, palms, claret ash, golden elms, white cedar, silver birch and a very shady bay tree. Helen and Dean will host the public at their open garden at 18 Olive Parade, Kadina on Saturday and Sunday, November 3 and 4, from 10am until 4pm. Admittance is $8 which includes a Devonshire tea.

A trading table of homemade goodies will be available. Proceeds will once again benefit Cancer Council SA and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The Roddas have raised more than $67,000 since their first open garden in 2007. They invite you to come and enjoy the Roddas’ slice of paradise, lose yourselves in the garden rooms, enjoy sitting on the decked pier, have a game of croquet, or enjoy a catch up chat with friends as a meeting place.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this tranquility.
