A key job this week was moving daffs, from the kitchen garden where the space is needed for nursery beds, to a boundary border. The hard ground made it tough work, lifting daffs and digging them back in here and elsewhere, where we have been dividing and moving clumps. But it will be worth it. In the continuing drought another main chore was watering!
It was cold in the northerly winds, but we were warmed by the physical work and the joy of seeing the lovely fresh leaves on the trees, the apple and quince blossom, the flowers on the acers, the tulips and euphorbia in the Italian Garden and the stonemasons hard at work on the balustrade restoration.
