Getting down to spring
If you were around on March 2nd, you would have seen the whole of Virginia Primary School and 25 small children from Columbia Nursery School come , in wave after wave, to scatter spring and summer seeds on the beds of Arnold Circus. They’ll take two months to come up, said Ken Greenway of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, who directed them all in chucking mixed seeds and sand. Let’s just hope that the unknown anti-social elements who carefully lift their dogs onto the borders to scratch and crap won’t put a spanner in the works. Here’s what was scattered – poppies, cornflowers, pheasants’ eye, marigolds, night-flowering catchfly, wood avens, ragged robin, red campion and betany.
