Our first week at Hidcote has been exciting and busy!
We began on Sunday with the Dawn Chorus Walk. As you can imagine we began at dawn, and listened to bird songs, watched the sun rise, and walked along public footpaths which surround the gardens.
In the gardens…
We have helped visiting children enter the sunflower growing competition,
planted and weeded portions of the Long Borders,
leveled the Stilt Garden,
took on a project of our own, and planted two beds in Mrs. Winthrop’s Garden to reflect the historic ambience of the specific garden area (before and after pictures to come),
trimmed hedges and replanted the original entrance to Hidcote.
