A HUGE downpour of rain the night before did little to dampen spirits at Leeton's favourite garden event in 2019.
Held on Easter Monday, the Leeton Water Wheel Garden Club's annual open day was a little damp underfoot thanks to a thunderstorm the night before.
While numbers were down, many residents still braved the cool and wet conditions to check out what each of the six open gardens had to offer.
Each garden had its own unique spin to it and residents took the opportunity to wander through with umbrellas aloft, while picking up ideas and tips for their own home garden.
Leeton Water Wheel Garden Club president Jeanine Bird was thrilled the event was still well supported despite the inclement weather.
"It was quite wet underfoot, but we were so pleased and thankful to still see people coming out and supporting us," she said.
"It was just wonderful.
"We were a bit worried, but we were never going to call it off.
"The show must go on."
Every year the event raises money for Leeton shire charities and community groups.
It is expected the amount that will be donated this year will be slightly down on last year's donations because of the smaller crowd, but Mrs Bird was hopeful it would still be a sizeable amount.
"We haven't done the final numbers yet, but I'm confident we will still be able to donate some money and break even on the event, which is all we can ask for," she said.
"We'd like to thank those that did come out, as well as all of our hard-working volunteers and those who showed off their gardens."
