It was a lovely day, between cold weekends, so volunteers spread out across the Gardens, to hoe, weed & tidy-up while enjoying the tranquillity, birdsong and warmth in the sunshine.

It is amazing how good the Gardens can look without rain. The blossom keeps on coming in the walled kitchen garden; the cow parsley is shooting up in the Glade; the handkerchiefs are beginning to waft on their tree; lily leaves are beginning to come through in the Italian garden pond; chicks are calling out to their parents for food; and butterflies (orange tips) and bees are out and about feeding themselves and pollinating our plants.

But we would dearly love some rain – fingers crossed!
