Thoughts from March 2007

guerrilla gardening

Gg

Seeing as it's now spring it's the perfect time to be thinking about gardening. If you don't have a garden/window box/allotment/terracotta pot then why not try some guerrilla gardening*? Described as 'a floral assault on neglected public spaces', it's definitely got something going for it. Read more here...

*innocent in no way condones illict acts of horticulture.

o'er the border

This week our crack sales team (Ed, Vic, Ginger Sarah & Linds) have headed to the top of the country (which is a looooong way in a grassy van) to visit our Scottish stockists.

More news on Friday...

i spy in our local park

It's officially spring now (I can say this with confidence - Andrew did some research and it apparently started on 1st March) so I went to the park at lunchtime to see the effects. Here's what I found...

1 pair of discarded welly boots.

A foraging squirrel. It's a great word 'foraging' isn't it.

Dsc_0116

Some nice cherry blossom.

Dsc_0101

A pair of trainers in a tree.

A pair of parrots (or are they parakeets?) in another tree. I actually got a little worried that they must have escaped from the zoo so called over the local community policeman (who was on a lunchtime stroll as well). He told me that they were locals to the park and had been in residence for the last few months. Fascinating.

And last but not least our new smoothie of the month sporting a lovely spring label by Kat.
