    When I was at school in the 1940’s -50’s we had black-boards.
    The teacher would write in white chalk and throw the black-board eraser at us if we told jokes at the back!
    At University we had white-boards and our lecturers used felt tipped pens. (usually black or blue.)
    But ‘Chalk-boards’? Is this National Trust (PC) speak?
    Anyway: Good luck to all restorations – especially, walled gardens. :)

      I think chalk boards are the in thing… They are present in pubs and eateries displaying the menu. The reason for that I think is it aesthetically pleasing. In fact ignoring PC and modernity… People respond to things represented in this way.

      I am very much enjoying watching the progress of the restorations in the walled gardens :-)

    Gardeners’ logbook sounds fascinating. Were the blooms different in yesteryear?
