Views around the Grounds and Walled Garden - 27/07/11

Today was my last visit to Wallington in July. In the Walled Garden the jobs were given out and I was asked to water and feed the plant containers in various locations around the garden. After completing this I did a spot of flower dead heading before commencing to edge the grass.

This was to keep me busy until lunch time and for the rest of the day. For the time of year
 the garden was not very busy. I did spend sometime talking to the people who had come to this National Trust property. They were as usual, very complimentary about the garden and how well it is maintained.

The weather was overcast in the morning and the sun started to shine at about 2.00 p.m. The Walled Garden is an ideal place to be when the sun is shining. It is still producing a wide variety of plants and shrubs with vivid colours. New planting for this season is still producing new areas for the visitors to see.

Grass cutting is still a major part of the work being undertaken each week.

The following photographs were taken today:
