Over the past few weeks, large numbers of bulbs have been planted by residents on the Moorpool Estate – as part of the In Bloom plans for the area.
On Saturday afternoon John (a Harborne Councillor) and I were invited along to help plant bulbs on the piece of grass at the junction of Park Hill Rd, Moorpool Avenue and Margaret Grove.
Fortunately the planting took place during a welcome break in the bad weather on Saturday. John actually spent most of his time re-covering the one way signs which have been put up in the area for the new one way system which will be introduced shortly. The signs are not yet in operation but the plastic covering some of them had been blown off in the winds overnight which could have lead to confusion for motorists if they had been left visible.
However even without his help, the sack of bulbs was soon planted. Now we can look forward to a riot of colour in the spring!
