2 weeks in..Ulting wick

Wildlife, plants and shows. It’s all been happening here!

A quick post to let you know I’m not dead!

Just busy!

I also have limited internet access, which is driving me a bit loopier than usual!

The last 2 weeks have flown by though, nervous new girl was greeted by Phillipa and Neil, who’s shoes are rather large to fill… size 11 to be exact! I had an information full 3 days which I can barely remember now, thank the gods I take notes!

Then on my 4th day I met my assistant and what a lovely, enthusiastic chap he is, which makes life just about perfect!

Those of you who have been following me on twitter will have seen my continual posting about the reams of wildlife here, on my first night I saw my first hare in over 35 years!! So incredibly exciting, swans made an appearance, coots too!

I’ve heard owls at night, muntjacs in the day & honestly it feels like paradise here… *happy sigh*

Last Monday I played hooky and snuck off to Hampton court for the press day, had a fabulous time and got to see Charlie & the teams work on colour box.

Much fun & silliness ensued with the #gdnbloggers

So what else has happened?

I’ve started cutting the box hedges, borders have been cut down, veg garden planted, an absolute stash of huge bulbs were unearthed! Then promptly replanted… oh, and I went to Hampton court again! Volunteering for Perennial. They’re great people, big love!

So to make sure I don’t waffle any further here’s the pretty bit…

Hope to  get back to my usual posting soon!
