We should know better!

 I love this photograph. It sums up the fun, work energy, comradeship and sheer enjoyment of our job. The person without the uniform is our new recruit Elva, looking ready for anything. Welcome to the Wednesday team, Elva.

The job today was to tidy up the East and West Terraces, the two long beds in the Italian Garden. We looked at the beds and thought this will be a doddle, we’ll be finished in time for elevenses and a bit of a sit down. We should be wiser at this stage. By the time we had finished dealing with Kniphofia, Alstroemeria, Salvias, Lobelia tupa, Verbena Bonariensis, Penstemon, Diascia, Asters and the weeds it was nearly three o’clock. Very long beds.

The East bed reflects the colours of the rising sun and the deeper reds and purples of the setting sun are seen in the West bed. All the beds in the Italian Garden are looking spectacular at the minute.
