Weather has had a major impact on our 2020 club outings so far. While the light was poor at least it was dry day at Russborough on Saturday.
There were plenty of joggers, cyclists and families with small children all out enjoying the great outdoors.
Cyclamen Coum, aconites, crocuses and wood anemones were all in flower providing welcome colour.
The ‘National Birds of Prey Centre’ was of course open for visitors and appeared very popular. In the walled garden RHSI volunteers were hard at work. The Rhubarb is almost ready to harvest and the perennials are beginning to sprout. I look forward to our ‘Macro’ visit in June when hopefully the wide variety of flowering plants will have numerous insect visitors for us to capture!
We rounded off our visit with refreshments in the very popular ‘Tea Rooms’.
