Round 2 of bulb planting in Marston, and this time we were put to work along Marston Road. Clearly, we're pros now, so we barely needed the explanation of how best to get the daffodil bulbs in the ground before we got digging!
Splitting off into three spots we liberally speckled the verges with bulbs, with extra attention given to the grass bank and corner areas. There may have been some staging of funny photos (Matty, Bethan), the Lord Mayor bent my trowel with over-enthusiastic planting (I demand a solid gold replacement please Mark), and Jessy got to practice her newly re-acquired hopping skills for stomping the turf back over the top of the bulbs.
Our final Marston bulb planting session will be on Sunday 31st October. The timing has been set to allow for volunteering at Florence Park Junior Parkrun first, so if anyone is keen to do that too email email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing the roads of Marston awash with yellow in March!
