Roses in Cable Street Community Gardens

The roses are all over the Cable Street Community Gardens, draped over railings, climbing up trellises, hidden away in unexpected corners – gorgeous! These are Community Gardens, not specialist rose gardens, and I have posted on the Gardens, but the roses are so beautiful I felt I needed to share these images with you – if only I could post the scent. Do visit on Sunday 19 June during Open Garden Squares Weekend!

Cable Street Community Gardens

Cable Street Community Gardens was ‘…founded in the late 1970’s as part of a Friends of the Earth initiative reclaiming derelict land for local community use…’ by an intrepid lady and a few friends and is now a haven of peace, productivity, and wild life on either side of the DLR in Tower Hamlets. ‘Community’ is important here, people know one another, and care. These are gardens rather than ‘allotments’ and they are organic gardens which are bursting with interest and life in all meanings of the word. The Cable Street Community Gardens will be open to the public during Open Garden Squares Weekend and they are a ‘must-visit’ in this area.
