Abundance

Abundance of growth by a canal.

Visited the Canal Festival at a very wet Kirkintilloch, just a few miles outside Glasgow, on the historic Forth & Clyde Canal.

The Seagull Trust provides boat trips on the canal for people with special needs. They were there fundraising for the project by offering trips a little way along the canal; and, yours truly was delighted to get on board.

Fantastic Place.

Fantastic Project.

Fantastic People.

Abundance of Life on a canal.

Round the Corner…

IMG_2317

Round the corner, by the Govanhill Baths, is where lemon balm and mint are growing, and indeed taking over their corner of St Bride’s Stalled Space garden!

Stalled Spaces – a great initiative started by Glasgow Council and then taken up by the Scottish government with a national remit given to Architecture + Design Scotland.

The focus is on making under used/ non-used sites available for communities to develop into a range of spaces; including for example

  • growing spaces
  • pop-up gardens
  • wildlife areas
  • urban gyms or natural play spaces
  • temporary art in the form of pop up sculptures
  • spaces for events or exhibitions, or
  • any other innovative idea

A pleasure to discover.
