Views around the grounds and Walled Garden - 13/06/2012

It stayed dry today at Wallington. The sky was grey and overcast and there were some bright sunny intervals as I worked all day around the borders of the House. My first job was to edge the newly planted Red, White and Blue border. The rabbits have been attacking the new plants, they seem to like the Lobelia, as all of the tops of the plants have disappeared.

Once completed I moved to the borders either side of the House entrance, edging and weeding. There was a steady stream of visitors going into the House this afternoon and I was asked many questions about the work that we do and the planting and trees around East Lawn. The rain kept away and I manged to get all of the work completed beside the House and moved to East Lawn for the last 30 minutes of my day at Wallington.

I took the following photographs before I started work this morning:
