Views around the grounds and Walled Garden - 20/07/2012.

At last a break in the recent wet weather! For one day at Wallington we have been able to complete our work outdoors for a whole day. It was not wall to wall sunshine, but the weather forecast is for a dry sunny weeked. This will hopefully get visitors to come to Wallington, as the recent wet weather has certainly kept them away and visitor numbers are down.

The wet warm weather of the last few weeks has continued to make the grass grow and I was asked to edge the grass on the top border of the Lower Terrace. I managed to get just over half way before lunch and finished it off before I left at 3.00 p.m. For some children the school holidays have begun and they were running around the grass areas.

The following photographs were taken before I started work this morning:
