Slightly dampened spirits

Posted by Sue Beesley on 13 Jul 2007 at 03:01 PM

The forecast this morning was for light rain, which proved more than a little optimistic.  With the rain getting steadily heavier, we decided to leave the garden alone for the day. The less we stomp on it in the wet the better. The forecast is much better for tomorrow so we should get a full day in. 

But we did make some progress - Jeremy from Bollin Rigging arrived to put the sail up and I think it looks great.  We'll take it down again for now though, just a precaution against high winds.

You were not alone - the rain sent lots of people packing early on a day when they'd normally be working well into the early evening. Quite a few diehards carried on tho'. Andrew Parsons was actually working in a [dry] T shirt under the tarp cover he'd rigged up, as soggy people in waterproofs squelched by.
Hard to see how the site will dry out and the gardens get finished by Tuesday - but Tatton does drain well thanks to the sandy soil.
If is it sunny tomorrow [Saturday] as they promise, it will be day of massive activity and working late in case the rain comes back Sunday.
