St. Swithin's Day

It's St Swithin's Day and it has been raining for the last few days, now it should be raining for the next 40 days! In between the rain showers and heavy down pours, the team continue their work around the gardens. Ady and Graham have spent the day clearing the Provost's drive, cutting the hedge and the over grown shrubs back to the edging stone line.
Having finished cutting back the long tendril growth of the wisteria on the front quad terrace, Joe and Ali continue to cut back and dead head the climbing and rambling roses in the college grounds, whilst Josh takes the opportunity to put some feed down on the Provost's lawn knowing that rain will continue, at least, for the next few days or will it be 40?
'St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain,
For forty days it will remain,
St. Swithin's day if thou be fair,
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair'

  1. Nice work! Missing the gardens and hope you're all well. Not surprised Worcester was recommended in the DT as one of best places to visit. Loving the blog and photos; makes me feel as though Manchester isn't the only place in the world which rains 99.99% of the time. Catherine
