Today, Easter Sunday, we confined ourselves to light gardening. For Aaron it was a normal day.
He reorganised the compost bins. This involved shifting the greenish fencing to the left from behind the Head Gardener’s Shed, and moving the contents of one heap into the one I had emptied during the week.
He painted the Ace Reclaim Bench.
He weeded more paths, and moved spare posts from the rickety orange shed to the trunk of the sturdier beech tree. Both of these tasks are shown in this view of the Phantom Path with the beech at the far end.
Another snaking path was that entitled Heligan.
The Shady Path, seen beyond the Dragon Bed;
and the Gazebo Path were weeded last week.
We have many ajugas, such as these
in the Oval Bed, like Elizabeth’s Bed beyond, now fully composted.
We have almost finished the preparation of the Rose Garden, the first image of which shows the chimney pots in the distance, and the vantage point from which, at the south-easternmost corner I photographed the
jackdaw, now guarding the nest inside the chimney, with my little ZX700 HS. Every so often the bird descends into the chimney.
The geraniums macrorrhizum Ingwersen’s Variety are now blooming nicely.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s piquant cauliflower cheese, fish pie, crunchy carrots and runner beans, with which I finished the shiraz.
