Cleaning the cobbles on the South Terrace (the best tool for this is the gadget used to take stones out of horses’ hooves). The design on the cobbles is a dragon, the motto of the family being Metuenda Corolla Dragonis - Who will fear the dragon’s breath (roughly translated). The dragon can also be seen on the big pots on the Terrace. To see the design properly it would have to be photographed from the roof but I was spared this excitement by Health and Safety. Thanks to Winsome Linton for information on Terrace.

Twenty Millenium effuses aureum (pale green) were planted in the Sunk Garden, five on each corner of the beds. A lot of the tulips in the beds had been rooted up and eaten by mice but luckily Alan had foreseen this and had planted up pots of the same tulips in the nursery and these pots were sunk into the beds where the bare patches showed up.
