Transforming planters

These four planters on Norfolk Street had been neglected for some time, so we asked the shopkeepers nearby if they wouldn’t mind if we cleaned them up and put in a few herbs. They were more than happy with that, so we took out a big bag of rubbish, weeds and cigarette butts and planted some chives, mint and parsley. Sadly these plants struggled in the difficult space, but our efforts did encourage the renewed care of these planters and the following year we found them planted with bright flowers. The begonia flowers in the middle are even edible!
