Views around the Grounds and Walled Garden - 28/06/11

Spent another day volunteering at this National Trust property. Started off this morning by digging up bluebells in the Walled Garden Plum border. The afternoon was spent weeding some of the paths beside the borders.

Weather today was sunny and warm. There was a large number of visitors in the morning, but it got very quiet after 2.00 p.m. The House does not open on a Tuesday, so it does tend to be like this even on a fine day.

Garden Pond path was blocked again due to a large branch falling from a tree. This happened last Thursday/Friday and the gardeners cleared the path. The main part of the branch will have to be hauled out of Garden Pond by the foresters with their tractor.

Got to the property before 9.00 a.m. today and took the following photographs:
