Had a lovely visit to Aberglasney at the weekend and helped to clean the Ninfarium and water all the new seedlings in the greenhouse. It was all very hot work- nearly turned the hose on myself whilst watering the plants.

As happens in Aberglasney during the spring and summer months there are constantly  changing exhibitions. This fortnight there is a wonderful display of art/pottery/ textiles/ willow weaving.

 Wendy Powell- Jones has a great display of her water colours and oil paintings. Visitors on Sunday were enjoying looking at her paintings and wanted to know all about the artist, the paintings and the whereabouts of the  places and scenes. The paintings are a brilliant resource not only for the paintings but for showing visitors to the area what a fantastic area we live in.

I want a greenhouse like the one at Aberglasney

 

When I returned home I had to cut all the grass  and get the cottage ready  for new visitors but before I started I enjoyed a walk around Pond Field. There are two moorhens, the Canada Goose sitting on her nest, one solitary Mallard and a Heron…not  bad for a little pond!

These are the stunning for cones already growing on our Korean Fir tree

Most of the cones are around the top of the tree

The front border looks very Springlike...glad I planted some new tulips...last year the bulbs were all eaten!

Back to Aberglasney tomorrow evening for a ‘start of the season’ gathering of staff and volunteers…looking forward to a meal at the Cafe…the food there is delicious…guaranteed!
