The local BBC news (points west) has just been previewing what is happening in our Green Capital Year in bristol and it includes trying to get Bristol to be sustainable in food - my efforts to feed myself, family, friends and neighbours from my garden will help towards that.There will be an art installation of a boat moored in Leigh Woods (global warming) and over 700 orgaonisations have already signed up to help. I know the Botanic Garden is one of those. The students at bristol University are already the best at recycling in the country too. All very, very exciting. what a start to 2015. The weathermen say we may reach 14 degrees today and colder but sunny tomorrow. The cycle of alternate wet and dry , mild and a bit colder seems to be on again. No wonder I have so many plants in flower. But what of pollinators - none sighted so far.
