Magic Moments and Butterflies

One of the joys of being on site at this time of year is catching sight of these visitors.

Sedum seems to attract them in huge numbers.  I counted a dozen on this plant at different points in the day.

Ah well, their days are numbered down to precious few I guess, but they certainly add more than a little magic while they are with us.

I’ll have Sedum to split for the coming season: if you’d like one let me know.  You will have to find your own butterflies, however: these are hefted to my plot – I hope!

New beginnings and new enthusiasts

It’s that time of year when plots begin to change hands.  All around the site there are signs of new plotters bringing extra energy to their newly acquired plots.  This wee detail on one caught my eye today.

It’s a reminder that identifying your plot (which is a Council requirement) can be very attractive and effective without being expensive.

Stunning!

Our wild flower area has been simply stunning for weeks now.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the hard work to get it re-established this year and especially Michael who kept faith with the original idea of a wild flower garden after the difficulties of our first efforts.

How lucky are we?

The site was looking great in the sunshine this afternoon after lots of hard work to get it ready for our upcoming IYN assessment.  The new Octagon was a real picture.

This cheeky chappie also seemed pleased to be on site and was clearly appreciative of Gordon Mitchell’s efforts on the bird feeding front.

An eye for detail ….

Community Sunday – Huge Thanks!

I’d like to thank everyone who turned out to help on yesterday’s Community Sunday, plotters and friends from RGU and MacMillan – indeed even Mr Toad Jnr!  With so many hands available we got through a tonne of tasks and the new style General Meeting generated all sorts of good ideas for funding, better gardening and wider community engagement. It was super to see so many old hands and new faces on the day.  Thanks to all who managed along and for the bakers and makers who produced such a wonderful spread for the coffee and cake session.
