Congratulations and thanks to all volunteers who helped spruce up the Nursery Plot in preparation for the new season ahead. We look forward to hearing the patter of tiny feet and squeals of delight again soon. Apologies to Nick and Jack who missed out on the photo opportunity this time.

Sketchers come calling

It was a great pleasure to have the local Sketchers’ group on site yesterday. Such wonderful talents!

Eye Eye, who’s this?

Thanks to Paul (Plot 34) and Phil (Plot 35) for passing on these photos.

The story appears to be that the Sparrow-hawk was taking stock of its new surroundings after snacking on an unsuspecting Blackbird. Phil reports he was a very messy eater and not too bothered to tidy up afterwards either.

In full flight!

Thanks go to Phil (Plot 57) for making the photo available – and congratulations too for his quick reactions!

South Bank Splendour

We got a wee reminder this week of just how splendid the South Bank looks at its best whatever the season.

West end – Foxgloves, Waldsteinia Ternata, Primula and Vinca Major

From its early beginnings remembering especially the work put in by Michael (Plot 88) to get it established, it was super to see our current Volunteers working so hard to get it into shape for the summer ahead.

Apologies to all those who helped and who’s photos I missed.
