Oak trees for the new avenue

It is all action at The Old Rectory, the oak trees for the new avenue have arrived and thanks to the digger man for scooping out the holes for them while he was here, we were able to plant them all in a few hours as a Sunday family activity.  Anyone who knows The Old Rectory Country House in Leitrim or has stayed here will know that the trees are a big part of what makes this place so beautiful. I love them at all times of year, but soon now they will begin to bud and the magic of them coming to life for another season will begin.  This year there will be some additions to the family of trees here and we are glad to be a part of the continuing history of this place we call home.

Love when the snowdrops arrive a sign that winter is coming to end and Spring is on the way.  We spend alot of time in the garden getting ready for the Summer organizing pots and planting the Summer bulbs.  I have been in Amsterdam this past weekend and had great fun at the flower market buying unusual bulbs and I am looking forward to the results later this year
