Planting summer bedding, weeding and edging in June warmth this morning @StarbankPark

Julie and her team brought the summer bedding and a combined effort meant that all the beds have been planted out already.  Thanks Julie, but it’s a shame about the grass! Lots more weeding, edging and ground preparation too.


Lovely morning @StarbankPark: plants planted, weeds weeded and edges trimmed.

Amazing transformation in the weather since yesterday! Wall to wall sunshine all morning and yesterdays rain made the ground perfect for planting.  Unfortunately the rain has also made for perfect conditions for the never-ending supply of weeds in the park!

Glorious morning @StarbankPark

Wall to wall sunshine at the park this morning.  The main herbaceous border is being completely replanted and we got properly started today!  Special thanks to Jen and Fiona of the Council for organising the plants and the planting and for all their help today. And yes, the last photo really is one of the sky over Trinity at 10.00 this morning.  Even the East wind wasn’t too bad today!
