Anyway, I go by here a lot...



like so many commuters, I thought, how about adding a bit of colour to the commute?

in particular here...





I saw this some time ago, but it's been painted over now.

a bit closer

So, I went back and forth like an eejit a few times between the two stations to get this, the best of them. At least is mercifully short. Don't blink, esp near the end...

I'm ready for my close up, Mr de Mille...


So, I've grown nasturtium and had bought some night scented Stock and decided to do something with them.
First of all, you need a water supply, to water them in...
From the canal


Then, in they went.


the daffodils have almost completely gone over..

Well the night scented stock were a waste, noone there to smell them. And it's a place too hard to water during a dry spell.  69
However, I went not to the other side of the tracks, but the other side of the bridge...voila


Several nasturtium in there. Didn't ALL survive. Those that did, haven't spread yet...still establishing, I suppose
Right in the centre, behind the stone, in the toilet paper holder/insert

and

and another
last one...

I admire your perseverance, but the railways and highways are keen to keep their firehazards down to a minimum, that's why they strim and spray...better to work with them (the railways that is) Check this out that a friend sent me..    http://www.flickr.com/photos/friendsofhomertonstation/     Smiley

I don't like to think that all my work is in vain    Cry   , so do lots of recci and checking for strimming and spraying activity... if all clear, I proceed!!!  Got a site lined up.. probably will get built on soon but in the meantime got a fairly safe little ecosystem going on there... even one season of greening is better than none....

Good luck!!   Smiley
