Sunshine at Last.

Wow! great weather, really hot inside walled gardens at the moment, actually having to water some plants. Must keep an eye on our newly planted trees they could dry out very quickly. In the woodlands the Roscommon Schools have place a lot of their works for the Schools Sculpture Comp. Remember voting starts from the June Bank Holiday weekend. We have a new activity in the Walled Garden, well I suppose not new just revived, Croquet. A local croquet group have formed and we were delighted that Simon from Croquet Ireland came to give a lesson during the week. The group are having their first meeting on Wednesday 30th May at 11.00am in the Walled Garden. I hope you like the pic. In the Vegetable Garden practically all veg is planted out (now let the rabbit onslaught begin). At least this weather will slow down slugs a bit. The Herbaceous border is getting its first dead-heading already. Let’s hope this weather keeps up for a while.
