Flower Power!

I love the weather at this time of year (well, a very specific version of the weather) – when it’s cold enough to see your breath, but bright and crisp… Naturally, my enjoyment is also dependent on a warm coat, boots, hat, scarf and possibly gloves, but still…

This is also the time of year for planting the Springtime joy – burying bulbs into the ground and waiting for the beautiful colours to burst forth flower power in a couple of months is the closest I get to a treasure hunt these days and it’s an absolute pleasure.

I’ll be attending the Aspley Library Community Garden Bulb Planting Day on Saturday, 24 October 2015, where as well as getting involved in planting some Spring colour, there will also be activities for the children and I will be reprising my much beloved Paper Hydrangea workshop (places are limited, so book ahead to be sure of your space!)

HyacinthsThen on Friday, 30 October 2015, Helen and I will be ‘Digging in Some Daffs’ in and around Hockley, as part of our Articulture project for the Creative Quarter.  It’s all hands to the trowel, so spare us 15 minutes, please and help our lovely little bit of Nottingham bloom!… We’ll be meeting at 4.00pm at Broadway – hope to see you there!
