For some reason I didn’t expect to see green in front of the Queen’s House before next spring – I just assumed they’d sow seed – but no – they’re busy returfing and it’s looking good.
Have to say there’s quite a pong of manure hanging over the site just now. I suppose that’s one of the unexpected perks of having had horses to stay this summer…
I know some people have been moaning about the speed at which the park’s coming back to life. Personally I think it was inevitable. They got the course and stadium up fast because they had a deadline and the eyes of the world were on them. Now they only have us to moan at them. And I guess they did take quite some time to get rid of the stadium.
Thing is, I’d rather they did take their time and do it properly, rather than rush to deadlines and botch it up. This re-turfery looks pretty good. I’m okay with it really, as long as it doesn’t take too much longer. But, at the risk of opening a wasp-nest – what do you think?
Oops. Forgot something in that last picture
