Snowdrops and raindrops

Riverside April2018

Our regular Tuesday morning volunteer session took place under a dramatic sky this morning, on the banks of the mighty River Tay in the heart of our Fair City. We gathered snowdrops 'in the green', with the kind permission of the landowner, from a location further downstream and replanted them on the riverbank near the heather garden. We did this in close collaboration with the PKC Community Greenspace Rangers who advised on how and where we should collect the bulbs and how to deal with them safely. This is vital, because snowdrop plants, particularly the bulbs, are poisonous so need to be handled with great care.

The weather forecast was not good, and we worked under a dramatically dark and cloudy sky, but the rain held off until lunchtime so we didn't get too wet. On a more optimistic note, the daffodils were out in their golden glory, and many of the trees in Riverside Park are beginning to blossom. We agreed that this combination of conditions made for a typically Scottish Spring day! We will be out again next week, hopefully in the sunshine! If you would like to join us as a volunteer, do get in touch. No gardening expertise is needed, and we will provide training, tools and equipment.
