Views around the Grounds and Walled Garden - 18/01/2012

Much milder today after four days of hard frosts. The temperature was 9oC and in the Walled Garden the soil was muddy. There was no rain today and it did get a little brighter in the afternoon.

I spent the morning tidying up the Plum Border and moved onto the borders on East Lawn after lunch. The warmer and dryer weather gave a few visitors the opportunity to walk around the grounds and Garden. 

The severe weather of a year ago is a distant memory and the warmer weather so far has allowed the gardeners to catch up and get ahead with all of the work. Around the Walled Garden there are small areas with patches of colour appearing and the seasonal plants are starting to come out.

In the orchard the snowdrops have started to flower.

Took the following photographs before I started work this morning:
