It has been a long time since I have posted as the Boulevarden is under show - it still looks beautiful - we planted many grasses and plants that look as good in the winter as they do in the summer - so I am pleased with the winter garden plant architecture. I am already looking through gardening books and seed catalogs...I wish I had a green house again - hopefully soon.
Anyway...I have posted letters from Richard before...he is a guerrilla gardener based in England and his website guerrillagardening.org not only chronicles the escapades of guerrilla gardeners in Europe, but all over the world; the Boulevard is also included on his site.
So happy holidays...
Dear Troops On a day when London was cloaked by a glittering frost I write to you with season’s greetings and bring you guerrilla gardening gifts in the form of: - Three recent digs from Switzerland, Ireland and the USA. - Guerrilla gardeners’ awards - Surprise Hollywood support - A Christmas card to share Digs. Reports of guerrilla gardening activity hit my inbox from time to time, pop up on the GuerrillaGardening.org Community boards and appear on private blogs. I’ve just added reports from Greg 3516 in Zurich, Tampopo 2236 in Dublin and Amy 2903 in Raleigh North Carolina to the Troop Digs section of the website. These three wise guerrillas demonstrate the miracle of a sunflower triumphing in a government planter, the fun of roadside gardening, police sympathy and the power of mulch.
