To help remove our winter blues, here is a photo that I took of a bonny dahlia in my garden last summer. If any of our followers have a flower photo that you would like to share, then please send a PM to our page.
Sharing these amazing photographs with all our followers, whilst we wait for our planting season to begin at our Bloom greenhouse.👍😀http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-42960835
Many thanks to all who attended our AGM earlier this evening. Along with our new volunteers, we had representatives from Fife Council, St Andrews Community Council, St Andrews Harbour Trust,Transition University and Standen's "Clean and Green" team. On behalf of St Andrews In Bloom we thank you for your continued support along with our financial benefactors. We look ahead to Bloom's forward plan for our 2018 floral displays, enhancing the streetscape of our historic burgh. Our group's motto? Quite simply it is "ONWARDS AND UPWARDS"!!👍
With not much happening on the gardening front during winter, what about trying this out? Passed on to Admin by some forward looking Bloom committee members, could this help our feathered friends survive the cold weather?😉😀🤣 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2FZD3EZxTE
Our Chair Barbara Boyd and stalwart of the Bloom group, Jenny Sibbald, represented our organisation by attending this recent event. On the 25th January, University Principal, Sally Mapstone hosted a "Town and Gown" celebration in Upper College Hall. 64 town organisations were represented by members on the night, to enjoy a very special "Burns Night".
Here's a chap that Admin will be following this year.😀👍 Although January is almost over, any keen gardeners can still follow his tips into February. An interesting, tasty recipe is also included in his video presentation which is a bonus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8oDPa67W0o
