The rain stops and the gardeners come out to play....with smiles too! Here are the boys ploughing through all the jobs that got abandoned from the rain. Clive has been doing his annual rummaging around in the Lost Valley, collecting pea sticks for the peas to clamber their way up. A very traditional method of practise, which not only looks fantastic but is incredibly successful too.
Terry is playing at Pond Life, by waterproofing up and rescuing the Aquatic plants in our Flower Garden dipping pool from all the strangulating algae and pond weed that has accumulated. We can now see the array of assorted baby fish enjoying the clean and un-clogged up water.
Barry and Jamie had to most complicated task this week of planting the big blocks of lily bulbs. With the Victorians being extreme hot on immaculately straight lines, they had to take extra care with the measuring out, as one bulb out of place could ruin the colour show!!
Finally, Anthony has the smelly job of turning in the seaweed to fertilise the soil. But as always, kept smiling.
Phew, that's a good few jobs crossed off the list! Hope your all catching up too.
