Colours of the Rainbow at Belvoir Castle

This is my equivalent to fireworks night!  and why I love my job.

For six months of the year we go to work on cold, misty and gloomy days; 
We slip down steep boggy slopes in the pouring rain, 
Shake heavy snow off conifers, with flakes falling down our necks; 
Fight thorny battles tying in stubborn roses:  40' up castle walls!
Wrestle brambles deeply rooted at the bottom of Rhody's
Re-stake Plants blown over in hurricane winds...... 

and why do we do all of this: because of these..
