Finally: Fine weather!

Finally some decent weather has arrived, lifting our spirits out here in the garden.The long walk has now been cut back, apart from the really tender plants, although the surrounding ground is still too wet to get barrows across to mulch it. We did, however, get the terrace, secret garden and the bottom of the rose garden mulched.

Oakleaf prepared planting holes for us in the vegetable garden that will be home to the squash plants and they also planted up the new bed at the top of the mews lawn with roses. 

The orchard and pond lawns still have standing water on them but all the others got a cut and also feed, weed and mosskiller was applied.

On the main lawn some of the tree squares have been turned into circles, thus making them neater and easier to mow around. All of the roses have had a good handful of organic rose food. Also, we have some new arrivals in the form of four beehives that are now at the top of the new wall.
