Both garden and gardeners have been enjoying the recent bout of spring-like weather. The Woodland Border is filling with colour as more and more Hellebores are popping up. The snowdrops are just past their best but the Pulmonarias are following on.
Simon has been busy and, as well as transforming the Herb Garden by painting all woodwork with preservative, he also repainted the Genever Seat! This seat is cast iron and I just adore its intricate design and scrolls. What is so surprising, is its E-N-O-R-M-O-U-S weight. It is incredibly heavy. Having said that, he and Al managed to transport if from the cart shed back to the Herb Garden with the aid of wheels somehow. Whilst baking muffins, Head Gardener was blissfully unaware of these unauthorised manoeuvres! Anyway well done to them both! Chocolate muffins were well deserved - it's all looking very smart!!
