That patch of parkland had become a slightly hazardous spot for folks getting up to no good so all the hideout bushes had been chopped back and the park wanted to fill that area with daffo-dill-ightful flowers. The bulbs had sprouted already and were a bit wonky but I imagine the council got a good late season deal and they should come back again over the next couple of years. We ended up with a rolling arrival of volunteers, Rachel and I came just before 11 and finished that patch off and then left two trugs of bulbs for a different set of helpers and then treated ourselves to lunch in a cafe next to the park.
