Getting ready for the start of the Summer Season
ur Chalet manager, Alex, arrived mid last week and we spend a few days starting work, once the snow has melted, gardens in the Alps seem to grow at about three times the rate of English gardens and if you are not careful, there is a covering of dandelions everywhere. We re-seeded parts of the lawn - as parts had not survived well after the snow, planted the rockery mowed lawns and of course weeded. We also took the Wendy house to Chalet Au Gre du Temps - where a family is staying for 7 weeks, it must have looked quite amusing, transporting this down the Chavannes Road - balanced on a wheel-barrow on one side and Alex holding up the other.
Over the next two weeks, much time will be spent gardening - to get the chalets up to standard for clients arriving. Next weekend is the Portues du Soleil MTB event - this is excellent as you ride into Switzerland and see so much of the area in one day.
