June Film Show

 fILM LARGE POSTER.JPG

A UNITED KINGDOM tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama, the King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. Seretse and Ruth defied family, Apartheid and empire – their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.

Two Feet Apart

A little later than planned but finally I’ve managed to catch up with my news from the garden. The sickening events in Manchester last week left me with little enthusiasm for writing garden trivia and it’s taken a while to get back into the mood.

A few weeks back Mrs. Monty and I visited the garden of Tilford House in Hognaston which was open as part of the National Gardens Scheme. The owners, appropriately named Mr. and Mrs. Gardner (I kid you not) have created a wonderful streamside garden of woodland, wildlife and pond areas. A good example of a garden style where weeds are tolerated and even enhance the overall environment. We’re already looking forward to our next garden visit to Culland Hall on the 18th June which has a great plant sale with many specialist nurseries in attendance (be warned, cash only)

One of Peter Gardner’s favourite plants is the Hosta of which he has some 300 varieties. His wife Jean refers to his collection as his “hostalry”. The Hosta is also one of my favourites and whilst I don’t have such numbers I have been creating my own hostalry for the local population of slugs and snails. This is how the menu is looking so far –

Hot Bowls Team

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Having got three full houses in a row in the Tuesday League, what about a fourth? Not doing too shabbily in the Thursday League either. To cap it all we have a new Member for the Bowls Club. Thank you God. We have to thank him as nobody else seems to care. What a scorcher not only the weather, but on the green as well.

 Tuesday League

May 23 – Home – Wirksworth.

Bear in mind that we are still a few players short for various reasons so our results are scarily good.

We shared the four games two each. Pat B playing with Tony A is in a real groove and the pair of them won at a canter 21 – 9. Dawn A, back from her holliers, playing with Harry B also won 21 – 15. Although our other two pairs lost they lost by fewer points than Wirksworth. John B and Sue A 18 – 21 and Dennis and Clara E 11 – 21 which gave us a win by 71 – 66.

After this weeks match we have moved up to third in the League. Next week we play the league leaders. Keep your fingers crossed.

Next Match – Whitworth Park – Away – 30 May 6.30pm.

 Thursday League

May 25 – Home  – Bakewell.

Bakewell pipped us to the top spot in the Division last year by only a few points and were promoted as champions so we wanted to try to win if we could.

Ian J partnered by Audrey B had a cracking win 21 – 16. Ian is playing particularly well this year he is rapidly becoming Scotland’s second best sportsperson after Andy Murray. Audrey has only just about recovered from her broken wrist, what a result. The other two games we lost, although Dot H and Sue A came close succumbing 17 – 21. After the doubles we were 8 points down.

John H gave us a great start in the singles winning 15 – 8, followed by an even better win by Tony A 15 – 5. Dawn, playing to her usual high standard came home 15 – 9. Our final singles win came via the equally brilliant Edith who won 15 – 10. The two remaining games we lost, but because of the aggregate wins we had we won the singles games by 18 points. Overall result, Parwich 130, Bakewell 120. This will hopefully keep us in our mid table position.

Next match – Away – Matlock Park – 1 June – 1.45pm.

John B.

Question for Monty – Chelsea Chop

Hi Monty

In the last couple of years I have successfully treated my nepeta (catmint) to the ‘Chelsea chop’ around this time, but will this work for perennial geraniums? Are there other cottage garden plants that might benefit….? Thanks, Emma S

Wizards of the Green

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Can’t grumble this week, well perhaps a little (that will make a change I hear you cry). Good bits and not so good bits. Already a quarter of the way through the season. You are rapidly missing out on some good exercise and good company.

 Tuesday League

May 16 – Away – Bradwell.

As commented last week to get two full house scores in a row is good, but three in a row? Could the valiant few of Parwich continue to astound the Crown Green bowling fraternity, and without our brilliant Captain and Edith? Yes they could. Some great bowling by Tony A and Pat B produced a 21 – 4 win. This was followed by Sue A and John B putting together a 21 – 6 victory. Not to be outdone the husband and wife duo (you see you can play together if you want) of Dennis and Clara E won 21 – 13. It was all down to our final pair of Rick and Harry B to bring home the bacon which they did by winning 21 – 17. Parwich 84, Bradwell 40. Can we keep up this standard? Come down to Parsons Croft next Tuesday evening and see the wizards of the green stuff strut their stuff. (that’s probably given the team the kiss of death!)

Next Match – Wirksworth – Home – 23 May 6.30pm.

Thursday League

May 18 – Away  – Hope Works.

We have, as you readers of these scintillating reports will know, been doing very well in this higher division we now find ourselves in, however a few of the wheels did fall off this week. You must bear in mind though that we have been through the wringer with regard to members injuries. I dread to think what Man U’s manager would have to say about things. Anyway, we lost quite well, but if the opposition play very long ‘jacks’ whilst playing against two ladies one of whom is still recovering from a broken wrist and the other with a bad ankle, what do you expect. After the doubles we were behind 63 – 27. We shared the singles games three apiece with Pat B showing how it should be done, winning 15 – 2. Still the singles gave us 78 – 68 points tally. The final outcome was never in doubt though with a victory for Hope Works 131 – 105.

Next match – Home – Bakewell – 25 May – 1.45pm.

Question for Monty

Now that the rain has come and the weeds have carpeted my garden overnight in a foot high swath, I am interested to know whether our gardening community hoe or hand weed. Hand weeding kills my back but hoeing doesn’t seem to catch every weed and I often slice through the stems of something precious. Also, does anyone have a secret weeding weapon? My preferred killer of choice is a Wilkinson Swoe and a Japanese hand tool like a curved knife but they both require serious concentration to avoid random decapitation of plants.    Patti B.
