Here we are in the City Garden at the end of February and I have been totally silent for quite a while! I have, however, been busy with several other activities – a short IT course, a few tailoring lessons, and a photography exhibition. I have told myself it isn’t gardening weather but just recently I have managed an hour or two and so here I am with my Six on Saturday!
The irises are beautiful now, glorious colours alongside the paths, tucked away amongst the cabbages and roses. Cable Street Community Gardens does not offer the ordered ranks of park beds, or even the manicured and managed herbaceous borders of country mansions and National Trust properties, but instead you will find plants and flowers which are loved and enjoyed with gusto and enthusiasm. Linger here with an open mind, and heart and find the beauty alongside the DLR – do visit on Sunday 18 June when the gardens will be open during Open Garden Squares Weekend.
