Today I visited the library in the park
on a very different day from the recent snowy one
and then went into the walled garden.
In the main area by the pond the sun had melted the frost.
The bees were flitting about in the sunshine,
but in other shadowy areas frost still lingered.
The gardeners and volunteers had been busy
clearing the area, pruning and cleaning
the greenhouses and preparing the ground
in the community garden.
Everywhere looked neat and tidy.
Beyond the walled garden there is a shelter
of living willow trees.
This is what it looks like in the Summer months.
The herbaceous border will be planted out
and will be looking colourful later in the year.
The pond in the wild garden had been
cleaned out. As usual there were
many birds and as another photographer
was taking photos
it was good to stop for a chat
and compare notes.
