A week later........

On sunday morning a small team worked in the school garden to make good and replace the hazel hurdles which were damaged beyond repair in the last gales. They have been replaced with larchlap type fencing which should be stronger and last a little longer.

Nearer the pond the first daffodil of the year in the garden was flowering along with a few crocuses.

In the greenhouse the sweet pea seeds planted just before Christmas are doing well. They should give us an early show of colour and scent

Finally one of the rosemary bushes which had found itself in the wrong place has been moved to a new home in the World War 2 garden.  It should fill out the space just inside the gate so when we go in and out of the garden we can enjoy the smell and the flowers.

With the diggers quiet next door over the weekend the birds had returned to the feeding station and made up for what seemed like a lack of appetite during the week. The fat balls and seed disapperared very quickly and had to be topped up before leaving.
