Started clearing Ponticum around two species rhododendron in the private house garden we can now see some of the terraced beds that had become hidden in the overgrowth.

Serviced the strimmer in preparation for lawn maintenance. Noticed that the deer are back in numbers and have been monitoring their movements. They have already started attacking the 13 trees that I planted at the bottom of the meadow.

The dalihas are starting to show where they can be split from. Looking forward to a garden full of gorgeous blossoms this summer.
