The Head Gardener Break time already!
Afternoon, this morning the head gardener and I got busy out in the garden with a few chores that we wanted to get done before we go away next week. Stuart pruned the Buddleia and the Lavatera and I managed to tidy some of the pots up . The birds have stopped coming to the table already so I swept up some of the husks that had accumulated during the bad weather, what a mess it makes but if I have it on the patio we have all manner of things growing through the spaces in the summer at least on the grass the mower takes care of all that. We have been out and about the last couple of days we were at St Andrews on Monday and Perth yesterday so it is nice to have the day at home today. It was a bit cold out in the garden this morning but it was great to get started. The grass has not started to grow yet which I think is unusual but am not sure, I think we notice more with being at home now. Kirsty was bleating all morning when we were working it sounded so funny its usually a barking dog somewhere. Just as I sit here at the keyboard the snow has just come on again this is an unbelievable winter even for us up here in Scotland. If it stays as cold as this I will get a wish I have had for many years to see the highlands in winter. When you come down the hill into Perth you can see for miles and we saw yesterday there is substantial snow on the Grampian Mountains so by the time we get north to the Cairngorms it should be something special. So be ready for a lot of snowy photographs when we get back. Well I'm off now to see about getting the cases down from the loft I think I should pack plenty of thick jumpers and thermals if the temperature is going to stay as low as it is today. Hope you all have a nice day Love
