Sat June 18, 2011 – Painting between Showers

My newly labelled entrance on
Halpin Place.

My courgettes are starting to bloom. Here come the
Zucchini.

My community gets a delivery of 30 bags of gravel.
Now that’s what I call drainage.

The Tang family popped in for a visit. They helped my
community find all of my hidden fruits.
Joseph, Hannah and Timothy are
oh so clever!

Fatima painting the trellises Sunflower Yellow.

Zahar painting the trellises Rich Berry.

Here’s Michael making labels …

and cups of tea.

Today my community fed me with …

delicious organic fertiliser.

Here comes the rain again.
Falling on my head like a memory.
Oh well
Time for another cup of tea.

Although anti-theft paint is a must to keep me safe.
My community can’t be leaving me feeling
like common criminals.
The handles and locks have all been
cleaned of that gooey black paint.

As it approached 4 pm …

we were still hard at work.

    Thanks Joseph, Hanna, Timothy and Kenny for sharing your thoughts!I am very happy that you are enjoying transforming me into a community food growing space. I look forward to seeing you again. Hopefully we'll have better weather, although my plants have enjoyed this rain so I won't complain!
