Ickleton Society Tour of Botanic Garden – 16 June 2013

On Sunday 16 June a group of members visited the Cambridge Botanic Garden.  Our delightful guide, Peggy, showed us round and made the afternoon both interesting and fun.  Nearly all of us had visited the garden before but we learnt so many new things about its history, the planting, and some of the trees and other plants.  Most of us had no idea, for example, that horse chestnut flowers have a yellow spot to attract bees which turns pink (which bees can’t see so well) once the flower has been pollinated!  The afternoon was rounded off nicely with tea and cake in the café.
