Lots Happening in the Woodlands & Walled Gardens





Lots going on in the woodlands

All of the pieces of sculpture are in place now for the Roscommon Schools Sculpture Competition and voting begins on Tuesday 5th June. Really great work again by all who have taken part this year. Make sure you get over and visit. One of my favourite plants is in flower in the woods at the moment - Foxgloves, there is one clump that we were very careful about while putting in the path and it is in full bloom at the moment. I hope you like the photo. Earlier today as I was  out putting posts up for the sculpture comp I came across a red squirrel using one of the squirrel feeders, this is great they are really getting used to people these days. I took a photo with my phone but it would not upload, maybe next week. The walled gardens are colouring up nicely the herbaceous border is getting a major weeding these days and last few veg plants going out. Rabbits are now becoming comical you go into the garden and they just sit looking at you, it’s their garden. They think! The croquet club are doing really well, nice to hear the whack of a croquet mallet and ball on a sunny day. Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend.
