Guest blogger Jane Hogg, from FCT Visitor Services,
was one of the first to receive a packet of special Helix
Look out on Helix Day, where this seed mix will be
available for visitors to take home and grow their own
little piece of Helix Park.
Only 7 days to go now until Helix
Day and the pressure is on to get things looking
For many staff across FCT and The Helix working towards the
opening, it means that the washing gets left, the Hoover
gathers dust and most meals these days are coming from the
freezer. However I did find a bit of time last weekend
to finally tackle the weeds in the garden. And in a little corner,
I scattered my Helix Wildflower Mix.
To be honest I'm not a very diligent gardener so after a few
tugs of the grass and a quick rake I ripped open the packet and
threw caution to the wind. The tiny little seeds flew
everywhere so I am hoping for a random effect.
Such excitement in the Hogg garden, plus some lovely smelly
compost, caused great excitement for Alfie. Alfie is
the Hogg family rabbit and you can see him in the picture
inspecting my handy work and getting his paws nice and dirty.
He loved the newly weeded area of the garden and plonked himself
down in the sun to enjoy the dirt.
All we have to do now is hope that the seeds germinate and produce
some lovely wildflower. More picture to follow of rabbit and
Hope to see you all on Helix Day. By the way I'm leaving
Alfie at home.
