Today we had a visit from Rosie, a Landscape Ecologist from the London Wildlife Trust. She identified over ten flowering plants growing in the lawn and we discussed lots of exciting ideas for the garden. WATCH THIS SPACE! Without Rosie we would never have known that in the lawn we have Dog Violets, Field Woodrush, Yarrow, Common Catsear, Sorrell, Yorkshire Bent... to name but six! Birds, Bats and Bees were all mentioned too... The Green Alkanet is growing on the edge of the lawn and is coming up in various places, in spite of NO RAIN AGAIN TODAY! Of course, it is blue, even though it’s called a Green Alkanet! We talked about doing a bird survey, amongst many other things. When our meeting was over, it was all systems go to be ready for the Green Waste Team to pick up all the green waste tomorrow, so we had to work hard to bag it all up! Anyway, it’s all done and we can’t wait now to get on to the next stage. Please keep spreading the word with the neighbours to get some more pledges and remember if you are offering to help, to offer your hours here on the Wish List. Please add the number of hours you are offering and you don’t have to do it all in one go!!!
