We drove the 5 minutes to St John's and parked in the centre of the village. We were lucky enough to find a table by the window in Greens Cafe, a popular lunchtime spot.
Freshly baked ham and egg pie with heaps of various types of salads and a bottle of sparkling water then I was ready for a walk.
A short stroll along the road took us to the Community Garden, planted out in 2018 to celebrate The Year of Our Island. It was designed as a wildflower garden and has been left to do its own thing, as you can see from these photos. The wildflowers are thriving.
A further 5 minutes walk along the road took us to Garey Ny Cloie, the headquarters of the Dept of Environment. Their gardens are open to the public and worth a visit.
Crossing over the road we took the footpath beside the sawmill that takes us to the railway trail back to the car park.
A huge mass of rose bay willow herb.
Back home it is time to get out the garden chairs and enjoy what is likely to be the last of our sunny weather for this week.
