The gardening team and other volunteers have continued to replant the borders in the Walled Garden and around the house. To me, this year, the flowers of spring did not seem to last as long as they usually do? The continued hard work at this stunning property ensures that there is continual colour and always something for the visitors to see. As we are have moved into mid summer there will be a wide variety of plants to be seen at their best.

Visitors on their first visit to the property have commented that they did not expect to see what they did and can appreciate that a great deat of time and effort is required to look after this wonderful environment.
The weather was sunny and warm. There was a large number of visitors in the morning, but it got very quiet after 2.00 p.m.

Garden Pond path was blocked again due to a large branch falling from a tree. This happened on the 23rd/24th, following the heavy rain and the gardeners cleared the path, leaving the bulk of branch in the water. The main part of the branch will have to be hauled out of Garden Pond by the foresters with their tractor.
School holidays will be on us again shortly and the property is heading for its busiest period of the year. There will be a large number of events held at Wallington in the next few months. As well as coming here for my weekly days volunteering, I shall be coming to some of the events planned, and continue with my photographic record of 2011.
