We had a excellent tour of Preston Park last Saturday. There were about 10 of us plus two guides Dave Heltzell and Tony Stagno. We saw very few ‘wild flowers’, but the Rhododendron, Azalea and Lilacs were lovely. The big surprise was the meadow full of shooting stars we found at the end. Click here to view photos.
