Views around the Walled Garden and Grounds - 18/04/2012

A dry start to the day, but a weather forecast of rain later. Wallington was a lot quieter today after the Easter weekend activities. There were a few visitors to the Walled Garden early morning and it was to become quieter when the rain came just before lunch. The job for today was to edge the lawns on the Lower Terrace strating off with the railway Border and moving towards the Mary Pool.

The rain became heavier in the late afternoon and I had to don my waterproofs. It was a scramble to get all of the edging completed, I managed to get it finished just as the prolonged heavy rain started. .

The Walled Garden is bursting into colour and new areas are being planted for this year. New visitors to Wallington are surprised at this five acre formal garden. Regular visitors comment on the changes that they see between their visits. Spring is a great time in the Garden, but in the next two months it will really come into its own and our work will continue.

The following photographs were taken before I started work and during the day:
