So here's one of the bags ready to opened and emptied onto the bed and then raked over into place.
Here's the contents of the first bag laid onto the bed near a lamp post
Here's another bag's content spread over the soil hopefully to prevent weed growth.
Meanwhile whilst I worked on the entrance bed nearest Rothwell Centre, Frances was working on the bed closest to the Working Men's Club.
Soon all six bags had been emptied and their contents strewn over the entrance beds. The last two on the entrance bed closest to the road.
Next in onto Margaret's Garden as per the plan where the rest of the group had gathered and were working on the various gardens in this area.
Here you can see everyone hard at work-Molly working on the garden closest to the traffic lights, a large wooden planter full of spring bulbs and plants. She then went to work on Blue Bell wood, that's the garden to the right of that white car that is driving along Marsh Street. Meanwhile, Mary is knelt down weeding the garden in front of her where Ground Elder, a pernicious weed had taken hold and needed removing. Frances, Betty & Rosalind were working on the brick circular bed, taking out the weeds and dead plants. I had started working on the wooden planters removing some huge weeds, then cutting grass around the planters themselves.
She invited us to attend the anniversary of their opening on Saturday 20 June 2015. As a group which contributes to Rothwell, would we like to attend and promote our activities. We said yes we would so something else to think about. Fortunately that week we are giving a talk at Rothwell Library as to what we have done in Rothwell so will have some display material to work with.
Then it was back to Rothwell library where we planted some new flowers in the bed we worked on last week and the large central bed.
That's it for another day-more composted bark for next week I think.
