All tagged pothole gardening
Recently I've been sent some photos of wonderful pothole gardens and I've been meaning to post them. It's great to see potholes from all around the world getting some love!
As the world goes crazy for the Olympics, I've been working on a series of Olympic themed pothole gardens around London, and as far afield as Bristol. Good luck to all involved (especially the Aussies!)...
Most of my little gardens have sprung up around London, specifically East London. On a recent trip to India I couldn't resist pulling out my trowel and getting my fingers dirty. I'm not sure what the locals made of it, but it sure made them smile!
I recently headed to St. Pauls for a spot of gardening...
Here's a short video showing how my latest little garden came about - enjoy!
On my recent outing with Stephanie, we created this little bundle of colour outside A and B Tyres, much to the amusement of the owner.
Yesterday I posted some snaps of my Wimbledon garden - as promised here is a short video that Tom and I put together featuring a squirrel and pigeon who were very interested in what we were doing!
Wimbledon kicks off tomorrow. Happy memories of queuing, eating strawberries and sipping champagne spring to mind. As a big Wimbledon fan myself (I spent a day in queue a few years back) I decided to create a wee garden to celebrate the start of this fantastic tournament.
A while back I experimented with my first "wall garden". Here's my second attempt (pictures just in, thanks to Stephanie Wolff). A colourful array of Pansies have brightened up this little hole which has made the perfect pot. I think it works really well with the graffiti on the wall.
Here's a little garden dedicated to the humble London phone box.
Growing up in Australia, my childhood memories are chock full of adventures at the clothes line. On my recent outing with Stephanie Wolff, I created this little clothes line garden complete with pegs, clothes basket, a fork and a spade.
While Chelsea flower show might be in full swing (my invite is obviously still in the mail...) so are my little gardens. I headed out today with my friend Stephanie Wolff from London Insight, to create some little beauties.
Here's my latest little garden. It's a little bit different to my other Garden's as there's no mini-furniture, or even flowers (I know it's not the prettiest but it has a purpose!). I've been inspired by recent projects such as The Green Line and Landshare, and so decided to create a mini-vegetable patch.
I headed out last weekend for some more gardening - this time with journalist Hanna Welin. Here are the results, enjoy!
I blogged yesterday about my adventures with Kate McAuley over in the Queen's poscode creating a little garden to celebrate Williams and Kates big day. Well, we shot a wee video and here it is. Enjoy!
I was recently sent this picture along with the note: Whilst driving on Mexico's Yucatan highway 261 between Dzibalchen and Xpuhil in the Campeche region we hit this massive pothole.
If you enjoy this blog and the photographs, why not think about donating to Living Streets?
o this morning as I was heading off with some serious colours under my arm and I was checking off everything in my head. Plants, check...camera, check...sense of humour, check...bum crack, check...photographer from the Evening Standard, what the?
