Wednesday 12 March Chatsworth House and WI

A real breezy start. After the usual bits set off for the Chatsworth Garden Centre as I wanted to get some plants and replace a couple of pots that he frost has got. Chatsworth House opens today (www.chatsworth.org) for the season so it was no surprise to see cars turning up the drive. Had coffee at the garden center the called in to see the cleaner who hopefully will be coming back to us shortly. We stopped off at the Chatsworth Farm Shop to pick up some rolls and ham for lunch. No guests out but both B&B in today. Both plan to visit Chatsworth. First guests arrived about 1.30 but hadn’t quite finished the rooms so they came back about 3.30 quickly followed by the other couple. After tea went to the WI. Our guest speaker tonight was a lady who judges at shows such as the Bakewell Sow. She gave us a talk and demonstration on staging displays. While we were there we had a short sharp hail shower and the hail was still on the car when we left.
