OPEN DAY and Spring

It was a perfect Spring day today and our gardens looked incredibly lush and vibrant. The bees were awfully busy too, and were particularly interested in the lavender and borage flowers. While I was there today a little boy came racing along the path beside the gardens and skidded to a halt under the mulberry tree, looking up expectantly. Then he turned to his Mother (following behind) and said with great disappointment , "They're not ripe yet." So clearly we're not the only ones excited by all that potential fruit!
We do need to do a bit of preparation for our OPEN DAY on the 18th October, especially the new extension but it's all looking good. Check out the photos below, including the valiant Trudie's great efforts as the very first planter box in the new extension to actually be planted out!
