The salad bed is doing really well - especially thanks to Barbara's watering between sessions.

Lots of people today, despite the ominous weather forecast.

The new perennial beds are doing well but we have a lot of re-growth of annuals seedings, which take a lot of work to clean.

We mowed the grass for the first time, dug meadow beds, weeded, planted, edged and finished another pond-dipping bench.

The hesperis (sweet rocket) is coming into flower - and we have a new bed of Snow White, white strawberries (pineberries). And biennial wallflowers.

New flowers are out too.

The second pond-dipping bench - also good for pond watching. Well done Justin, Kate and Julian!

And small children found hidden Easter eggs (not anything to do with us!).
