Pam as Karen says we will be tired to blog it all but I am sure we can share a few pictures further into this wonderful amazing project.

We are so lucky to be doing this.

And it all happened while I was walking in the Castle Italian Gardens I saw the head gardener working and went to chat to him.

And then said I wish I could do some volunteer gardening there.

It all snowballed from there ,when he asked if we would like to see the walled garden project .At that time I did not know about it.

And WOW I am so glad I chatted to him that day.

And then I thought of our friend Karen and mentioned it too Karen and yes both of us have been taken on.

Its just going to be wonderful.

How is that for a birthday gift for us.

Well Karen did you sleep like a log or did you see that ghost.

Or were you dreaming what plants we can plant.

22 Feb, 2013


Nope, I slept we'll! Can't even remember my dreams for a change! :)

6 Mar, 2013


Can't wait to see some photos Karen :o))

6 Mar, 2013


yes, I think I'll get my old compact out. Last week, on my first day I almost destroyed my lovely 'new' camera. I was in a hurry to get on the road to Glamis, but broke a nail opening the car door. Can't bear jaggy nails, so popped back indoors to quickly file it down, leaving my bag with my lunch and camera at the rear of the car. you know what's coming. Started off on the drive and thought "oh no,my exhaust has dropped off" but of course I had run over my bag! There was yoghurt all over everything and the camera was lying in the middle of the driveway all scratched. Scott says it looks like Kate Adie's camera now! Luckily it still works ok.

6 Mar, 2013


OMG Lol!! Karen I once drove off from a garden centre with my purse on the car roof. So busy putting the new plants in the car I completely forgot it and then wondered why someone was throwing paper all over the road behind me! It took me hours to gather up the contents, luckily it was a country road.
I wouldn't mind being likened to Kate Adie :o))x

6 Mar, 2013


Can just see you now!

6 Mar, 2013


Annie maybe you should have a wee holiday and visit the walled garden :)

6 Mar, 2013
