Bridewell Gardens – Bridewell is a mental health recovery service. They provide social and therapeutic horticulture in a working garden to adults living in Oxfordshire. Their goal is to help people into jobs or voluntary roles out in the wider community.
Here’s a couple of pics from Bridewell Gardens’ latest Open Day.
The Hot Border – the curved wall behind the hot border is thought to be shaped this way to give sunlight all through the day, a perfect spot for plants which need the sun.
This bed is replanted several times through the year to give a seasonal display of colour, and provides many hours of work sowing seeds, preparing plants to plant out and of course weeding.
The bees seemed to love the flowers in the Hot Border 🐝🐝
And from a visit to Daylesford Harvest Festival –
Sheep shearing, fascinating isn’t it?
A professional shearer can shear up to 200 sheep a day. And yes sheep can get cold after they have been sheared! as they are left with only about 3mm of their fur 😱 That must be a real shock to them!
Warm and sunny weather again, which led to great excitement! Finally one of my tomatoes were starting to turn red 😀
To mark Organ Donation Week (which began on 20th September) St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall was bathed in purple light to help raise awareness.
Love this 😍
Here I am (a bit windswept!) paddling my feet in front of St. Michael’s Mount when on holiday in August this year.
If you haven’t already, please discuss your organ donation decision with your families – “Leave them Certain”. It makes it so much easier if the situation ever arises, for everyone to make the right choices during an already difficult time.
