Bravo, to the businesses of Delacourt Road in Blackheath who've added some floral cheer and community spirit to the small parade of shops with their Gardening Group Project. I walk down this road, with its small parade of shops each day but as I've had a few days off I've not been up and down the road so much, so it was a lovely surprise to be greeted by the floral adornments as I popped to the local shops earlier today.
Wondering why the garage had left some tyres out I took a closer look.
The card reads: MHA Gardening Group Project for Delaware Road, please respect and enjoy.
And a little further along there was more, a pair of legs relaxing in a garden chair outside the MHA Trust charity shop, who I suspect are behind this, I'm sure.
Outside the taxi office, a storage crate or chest.
Outside each of the shops was an item that reflected the nature of their business, the baby shop had a basket which wouldn't look out of place in a nursery, perhaps without the flowers.
And outside the Natural Health Clinic, what else? A torso.
On the corner of the road, the newsagents and corner shop were also taking part, using a wooden crate for their display.
Walking back along the road later I spotted one I missed the first time round, and one that uses a tyre, that's been on the fence for a while (I've no idea why either) inventively.
Sometimes the most unexpected, but simple things can really bring a smile to your face can't they? Let's hope these little arrangements of community spirit and cheer are respected, I'm pretty certain they'll be enjoyed.
