Today’s job was working on the beds along the entrance path from the car park to Reception. The three most dreaded weeds in Mount Stewart are Oxalis, Symphytum and Ground Elder. Well, the three had combined in mighty splendour along the bed and I just wanted to go home and drink tea and eat chocolate cake. This was no trowel and bucket work, it was forks and wheelbarrows and a lot of huffing and puffing. Most of it was working under trees and bushes so we are not sure how many of us were there.
A lot of visitors as it was school holidays, lots of children having a good time.
