Guerrillas In The Midst

Following on from yesterday’s sad sight, I bring you an example of Guerrilla gardening, albeit in the borough, rather than the town of Greenwich, by our own RTB. He mentioned he’d done some and I wasn’t going to rest until he’d shown me the results…

He noticed that the war memorial in Eltham was looking – well, not really fit for heroes:

so set about creating a new display, full of meaningful and symbolic plants chosen for the place. The full story and plant-meanings are on his website.

And here’s one of the boxes, just after planting. It’s early days – it will need time to fill out, but he’s planted it using a frame of chicken wire to discourage vandals so you never know – it might just reach maturity.


Which has just got me thinking of Trafalgar Road’s own Tubs of Shame, in between the bookies and the lap dancing bar…

So, RTB, you’ve probably got some time on your hands now the war memorial’s done…
