Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
None of that is up here yet....too cold and lots of snow....very pretty
Hi Neva - I always like it when people add comments about what's happening in their neck of the woods. When do you expect to see yours?Have a great weekend...
Snowdrops in full bloom here now and what is surprising some little daffs have opened - probably a good two weeks ahead of last year. A welcome splash of colour though. What is your guerilla garden ?
Hi Anna - good to hear from you again! My 'guerilla garden' is the public land at the side of the house where I've planted lots of bulbs such as snowdrops and daffodils to make it look better in the spring and to blend in a bit more with my narrow side garden. I started doing this before I found out there's such a thing as Guerilla Gardening, where groups of people get together to plant up waste bits of unused public space, usually at night and in cities. You can find out more about at:www.guerrillagardening.orgI also blogged about it last year - my version is just me, a bit more rural and usually in daylight!
Thank you for your explanation - I will have a look at the link later. I have heard of this before but could not remember what it was called. I have done something similar. Our garden has a surface water stream along one of the boundaries. The other side seems to be unadopted and I have planted snowdrops and hellbore seedlings there. I remember seeing a news article not so long ago about a woman who was putting in a lot of effort in planting up and maintaining a roundabout. The local council was 'concerned' that she was breaking health and safety regulations when she was tending to this area. They wanted her to cease her activities !
Hi Anna - only too glad to help! The news article you refer to is about a lady who lives very close to me - common sense has prevailed and she's back to gardening on her roundabout in (relative) peace now.
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! If you have a question, I'll also endeavour to get back to you over at your place.If anyone is having problems leaving comments, do contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
