It was a lovely day today so we took the opportunity for a walk around Altamont Gardens.

It is a bit depressing seeing how far advanced in spring preparations these big gardens can be. All the beds were weeded, cut back and mulched with cocoa bark so the place looked great. It was a reminder of all the work I have to do in my garden yet : (

Other than that, I did a bit of orchid re-potting and watering and am going to pot on my Canna seedlings now. But first I need to sort everything out for Mullingar tomorrow : ) Looking forward to meeting you all.

Would be great to gardeners to keep the place shipshape, Altamont is such a beautiful garden.

Gardening writer's sons barred from Altamont Gardens for unruly behaviour!
