Last nights sunset over the Arm.
Today was the day we uncovered the Wildflower Garden. It has been covered by a carpet and chippings all Winter to smoother the weeds. This morning with the help of others, we uncovered it to the air and were very pleased to see that there were no weeds, just bulbs which had come up and tried to find the light. Clearly we had not dug them all up last Autumn. The bed was then sewn with Wildflower Seeds and our fingers are crossed that the bed will look a riot of colour throughout the Summer.
With the Wildflower bed done, we turned out attention to Bernard the Willow Bear, who needed some work done to him. He has been standing for almost a year now and has survived all the weather and attention to given to him by the Arms visitors. Alan his designer and builder came to add more Willow to his body to strengthen him for the season ahead. Jack and I helped by tidying him up and filling in where spaces had appeared.
Bernard’s new hair do, which was clipped when finished.
All done and ready to receive his public for another season.
The weather was so lovely, so it was nice to get a few jobs done in the Arm.
