Views around the Walled Garden - 24/01/2012

Overnight rain had not turned to sleet or snow as predicted by the weather forecast. It continued to rain on my journey to Wallington this morning and the temperature dropped to 1oC. The rain continued up to 10.30 am and although it remained cloudy there was no further showers.

My first job of the day was to help prune and tie up Quince on a border beside West Lawn. After lunch we started to cut back dead vegetation in the Cottage borders beside the Courtyard. Under the dead plants the snowdrops and acconites were starting to flower. The weather kept visitors away today.

I took the following photographs on the way to and in the Walled Garden before starting work:
