My dear friends, September is upon us and it's time for another episode of Out on the Streets :)
Now's your chance to show us the autumnal side of the public planting in your neighbourhood and/or on your travels, such as the pictured bright display I found outside Chippenham Town Hall last Saturday.
We had a wide variety of wonderful contributions in March and June, which you might like to look at for inspiration, or you may like to have a look at the post I wrote when I introduced my public planting series to see how I'm defining it for my own use this year. They may help you to focus in on a particular topic though it's entirely up to you what you choose to write about. We're here to celebrate the good, the bad AND the ugly as long as it's in the public eye ;)
So when to post? It's up to you. I'm keeping this topic open from now and during the whole of September and I'll put up a clickable photo link in my right hand sidebar as usual, so you can easily find your way back here. I'll add Mr Linky to this post shortly, so that everyone can travel around everyone's posts more easily. However, if you write yours before I do that, then do let me know by leaving me the details in the Comments below and I'll ensure it gets added to the list.
News hot off the press. I've just found out I've blagged my way onto a free seminar on Best Practice for Public Planting at the end of this month at one of the major nurseries which supplies plants to local authorities. Chris Beardshaw and the head of horticulture for Westminster council are two of the keynote speakers, so I'm hoping to learn loads on the day and tell you all about it :)
Don't worry if you've nothing to contribute for September as I'll also be running a special sparkly edition in December.
See you soon, Out on the Streets!
Update 7th September: I've now added Mr Linky: do add your name and the full URL link to your OOTS post - not just your blog URL - in the appropriate boxes below. Many thanks for your contribution and I'll come over for a visit real soon :)
