We’d a great turn out for a winter’s day. We’ve now cleared almost all the leaves from the grass, the Christmas tree was looking good (before the gale!) and there is still a remarkable amount of colour, including fuchsias and a very confused lupin. Bad news was that squirrels have been gorging themselves on tulip bulbs planted in pots. We should have known! We’ve rescued quite a lot and we hope the gluttonous squirrels don’t learn to open the cold frame!
