The Elizabeth Daryush Memorial Garden, 27th January 2018

We worked on Elizabeth Daryush Memorial Field on Boars Hill. The day was cold, grey and drizzly, but we soon warmed up with the tasks in hand.

The very wet snowfall before Christmas broke an amazing number of branches. Mainly fir trees, but also deciduous trees.  These had to be picked up so that the bulbs would have a chance and not be smothered.

We made a long dry hedge along the roadside edge of the site with the material gathered.  It was a very satisfying activity.

We could see the first snowdrops coming through and we know from working there in previous years, that they will be followed by daffodils and bluebells in turn.
