Jenny and Rose hatched a plan to do a group effort on our leaves and compost: shift the heaps around, do some finicky work and try out ideas and new skills too.
We did other jobs too – many thanks to all, and to Steph for cake.
However for photographing I was enchanted by just one story…..
|1 raking the leaves|
Once upon a time….
18 people came along to the Garden.
There was with an age difference of well over 60 years from youngest to oldest.
|2 making the rings
of wire mesh
|3 weaving in sticks
to hold it all together
|4 admiring the tower!|
|5 adding the leaves|
Meanwhile, back at the compost heaps:
All the separate bins were being sorted
We were definitely doing things we’d never done before…
ground elder roots
|older finished compost
was put out on the beds
And in another part of the garden, all was peaceful…
It was a great couple of hours, and it’s not an urban fairytale:
the story will be continued….
