Views around the Grounds and Walled Garden - 20/09/11

Weather dry and overcast today at Wallington. Changed my day for volunteering this week as I cannot get tomorrow. With it being a Tuesday, the House was not open! Not many visitors walking around the grounds. Spent all day working on the borders and edging the grass around the House entrance and south side of building.

Trees are starting to change colour and the borders are in need of a lot of work to clear out the dead flowers and foliage. With the recent heavy rain, the grassed areas are very wet. There will not be a lot of grass cutting carried out this week.

As well as regular volunteers there is a group of 12 people on a working holiday this week. A great deal of work will be carried out. It is coming to that time of year when a lot of cutting back and clearing out is necessary.

Took the following photographs around the grounds and Walled Garden throughout the day:
