A muggy yet sunny day saw five GoodGymmers came together to help in the never ending battle against bind weed, which grew rampant over trees and bushes in parts of the Fulham Palace Gardens.

Setting about our work, we made our way up the beds, dodging sprinklers and nettles to get rid of the pesky invaders, enjoying a few blackberries that grew in the area. We also got to see some of the beds we had worked on earlier in the year, where a greater diversity of flowers and plants had grown as good sources of nectar and cover for many a small critter.

Afterwards, we grabbed a quick coffee/ cool drink from the Fulham Palace cafe and slowly put the world to rights as per usual before going to enjoy the rest of our weekends.
