summer planting

June 7, 2017 by janet   Comments (0)

Well, what weather we are having! One day its sunny and warm and the next its windy and wet..
It hasnt stopped us though. We have been given several trays of beautiful bedding plants by GWR, and after a couple of hours hard work on Tuesday this week, all plants are safely bedded.
All I can say is, I hope they havent been blown away by the stormy winds today.
I am sure that most people who use our lovely little station appreciate our efforts to keep it looking as nice as possible.

Can you believe its nearly June?
We have been trying to keep the station as tidy and colourful as we possibly can, though the heavy rain last week didnt help as it flattened quite a few of our flowers, although some of the early blooms were going over.
We are hoping to be planting some bedding plants in the next week or so.
We must try to keep our little station looking as lovely as possible as so many people appreciate our efforts.
