A Trip to Calke Abbey
Easter Monday and a trip to Calke Abbey. Since my father-in-law's stroke the house itself is impossible for us to visit and so we make for the walled gardens. Noel gets a lift on what appears to be a converted golf buggy driven by a National Trust volunteer. We walk.
Spring has been cold and all growth is a good two weeks or so behind what we've come to expect. A few plants, gooseberry and red currants, are coming into leaf but most of the beds are freshly tilled and bare.
