With a hint of rain, but promise of sunshine later, there was a beautiful entrance of Bluebells to the woodland walk which looked like an 'in focus' Monet painting. A great photo opportunity for Jane and Mel who were joining the Victoria Park's volunteer team for some gardening. Today we planted 50 yellow hyacinths in two different areas of the woodland walk, which we won't see the beauty of until early next year, but which filled in some gaps amongst the other planting. Once completed, we moved on to cut borders around 4 rectangular plots, along one of the paths, ready for planting in the next weeks, which will add more colour in the Park. We ended the session with a visit to the Hub for a cuppa, biscuits and a chat about the growing menagerie of birds and animals coming into the Park.

A very enjoyable morning - the park is looking beautiful. I was surprised to learn that marigolds are an aphrodisiac for squirrels!!!
