The weather clearly disagreed with the idea of a National Gardening Week. On Wednesday, when the garden volunteers regularly work in the garden, the day opened in pouring rain. But, nevertheless, beds were weeded and stray crisp packets picked up from around the garden. Let’s hope the forecast for warm, dry weather next week is correct.

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
