Went for a "daffodil walk" with the gardener & one of the volunteers at Brodie Castle in Moray, they hold a national collection of narcissus. Unfortunately of course there aren't many out yet!!
The weather was beautiful & it's good to hear that the National Trust for Scotland a couple of years ago appointed a gardener & she has plans for the (unused) old walled garden. They've moved some of the old varieties as they were originally planted between a wall & a lime avenue, now they are in the open in rows. The old storage shed was interesting - I think some of the cobwebs date back to the heyday of breeding in the 1920/30's!!
They're doing another garden walk, in a different area on 6th May, we hope the weather will be as sunny then.
