4th volunteers weekend - april 21 & 22 2012

A small miracle happened during the last two days : the sun shined (almost) all the time ! And in this very humid April month, it was a blessing for the 15 volunteers that join the park team on the 4th volunteer weekend.
This first 2012 weekend starts the big cleaning up of the park for the exceptional openings on June 2&3rd (Rendez-Vous aux Jardins) and on September 15&16 (Journées du patrimoine).

With no interest in the scarce showers, the volunteers strated big work :

A group started cleaning and renovating the old "Jardin à la Française". A tough work of patience and a beautiful result !

The sides of the garden were also completely cleaned up.

Another team concentrated on the tea salon : renovation and painting of the chairs and tables, preparation of the big garbage cans and even the timbers of the roof...

The gardener group also attacked the huge brambles that were invading the giant rhododendrons. A huge, enormous, hard work done in complete cooperation and great mood.



Have you ever seen such a huge bramble root ?

And so much satisfaction over the results ...
