A fine winter’s morning (and a lovely spot for gardening) today @StarbankPark.

A bit cold but it was a fine January morning.  We cleared lots of weeds from the herbaceous border, cleaned bird boxes and did some planting too!  Not to mention having some well-deserved elevenses!

Collecting leaves, spreading compost and preparing for all our Christmas activities today @StarbankPark

Busy morning at the park. We must surely have collected all the leaves by now!  Best estimate is that we’ve collected a tonne and a half of leaves this autumn! The park is looking good, however, if a bit wintry!

Joyce Kay and Jean Gilmour presenting Carola Graham’s lovely painting of Starbank Park to the Friends @StarbankPark on Wednesday

Joyce Kay and Jean Gilmour presented this lovely painting of Starbank Park by Carola Gordon to the Friends of Starbank Park on Wednesday. They had commissioned it as a thank you to Laverock House Nursing Home for caring for their Aunt, Beatrice Bain, who had loved Starbank Park. Sadly, the Home closed in September and the painting was given to the Friends as a thank you for restoring and maintaining the park.
