Here’s a quick update on the Holme Lane Community Garden, just in case you were wondering. Our dear developer is still dragging his heels, our helpful council planing department are doing much the same. The broken toilet has been replaced, with another broken toilet, and our excellent bunch of volunteers has been hard at work repairing the damage done by the exchange. New grass seed has been sown, and is growing beautifully. Bulbs are coming up, the sign’s been repainted, weeds have been pulled, litter and dead plants have been cleared. Much the same as ever, really.
We can’t be bothered to sit around and wait for the powers that be to pass down their decisions from on high. We’re just going to get on with it. I mean, that’s how come there’s a garden there anyway.
If you’d like to see more pictures, the rather wonderful FairyNormal has put a set up on her Flickr stream, go take a peek.
One thing does bother me though. When I left the house today, I had a big bag of wildflower seeds with me, but now I don’t have it any more. Or rather, I have an empty bag. I think the seeds may have fallen out as I crossed the ‘contested’ land next to the garden (I had to, I couldn’t walk across the newly sown grass). Oops. Butterfingers.
