Every Tuesday afternoon, with Sam and ‘Big Ted’ we head off to Bannockburn garden to help the gardening team. The head gardener, Margaret, is a special person and wonderful gardener. She is ably assisted by Bobby, and a handful of other gardeners. There is always work to be done in the garden, particularly as the garden had been neglected for several decades. It is wonderful to work outdoors. I feel that it kind of gives a sense of proportion, the sort of proportion that endless digital feeds erode!
This ‘Big Ted’ film is for Margaret, Bannockburn’s Head Gardener.
