At odd times during the day there were some strong gusts of wind and a few drops of rain. It was good to be able to spend all of the day outside. The recent rain has taken its toll on the grass in the Courtyard and the St. Georges's Day activities at the weekend has not helped. Some of the events planned in the next few weeks will have to be held in other grassed areas around the property.
The poor weather forecast has put off a lot of people from visiting Wallington today. I only saw two visitors this morning and not many more this afternoon.
Pictures taken before I started work this morning:
