A nice day out except for the strong wind and rain showers. I’d always wanted to visit the gardens but never quite got around to it. I think I’ll be back when things are in full bloom but here are some of the photos that I took this time.

Another week at the office so to speak and its just great to see how everything is growing so quick.
If you are planning a visit to Glamis Castle over the season please pop up to see us and see what we are doing.
Some plants hardening off
Asters donated by Lucy from Southhampton
Along with White Agapanthus we have potted it up for now as not sure where to plant yet.
Passion flower has now opened.
The perfume is stunning
Grape Vine looking fantastic now.

Looking back up the walled garden and its going to be in full bloom by the summer.
One of the new statues in the Italian Garden. They are so beautiful.
There are more to see when you visit the Italian Garden.

It was such a a nice morning today, not cold just a bit windy but sunny. So I decided to try this walk.
Never having done this walk before imagine my joy when I came across many many rhodendrumns in bud.
So this is one place I do need to go back to next month to see them in full bloom.
Wonder what colour this will be…
Could not resist our wee friend the red squirrel!
No idea what this ruin was of.
Followed by a walk down the Castle Drive for morning coffee.
After tasty latte and freshly baked scone in the restraunt we walked back up the drive and down the steps to St Fergus Well (a place where Pictish people were once baptised by a chap called Fergus).
I think these are Snowflakes
Need id for this. It was growing on a small island in the river.

This should have been like this last month.
Seasons certainly shall be changing.

We are now starting to see a difference since the snow is gone and it has turned a bit milder. The plants we had sown a few weeks back in the potting shed are now growing fast in the Glasshouse.
The Herbaceous borders are also starting to fill with plants.
The Kitchen Garden all sown with vegetable seed now
And now buds on the cherries
And the Fantastic Bean Poles in place now
Carrots and Beetroot seeds sown
We planted all the tomatoes this morning and parsley plants
Our sales table for surplus will be potting up. Donations greatly appreciated for the restoration project.
