Its that time of the year where many community groups are tending to the borders, beds and gardens to make a difference.
A difference to transform any area large or small into a delight to gaze at. Using the natural beauty of plants. Now this is a topic right up my street as I’ve spent many hours looking after lots of gardens of all styles.
Like the garden presentations across the land today this one at St Annes on Sea Railway Station has prepared and presented the grounds for the RHS Britain in Bloom national gardening competition part of the St Annes in Bloom team.
Margret explains plants like the dwarf Buddleia to Gazania are some of the variety making a show this year. A lot of thought and preparation is key to get the best out of a grey space.
St Annes on Sea is nestled just a few miles south of Blackpool, a popular, pleasant and most picturesque Victorian family sea resort boasting golden beaches and a friendly, passionate community that surrounds it.
As with the other community groups along the line they take the towns appearance and display very serious.
Last year the station just a mile or two further south won the Britain in Bloom Best Kept station, so can St Annes Railway Station take that title and impress the Judges.
One station of no doubt many who take a loving approach to turning what would essentially be a grey space into a colourful vista.
If your interested in doing whatever you can in your railway community, check the links in the description area below and lets keep our green fingers crossed for the Station friends of St Annes on Sea.
