I’m starting today with the photo. I was back in Bearsden yesterday as unfortunately mum’s fall has finally resulted in a previous fractured femur being identified. The mind boggles. 

Boule de neige

She had an operation yesterday to pin her femur and hopefully will soon be on the road to recovery. While Dad was visiting her in the afternoon I was cooking up some meals for him. They have a lovely garden and I cut some wonderful pink hydrangea for one vase and the above crocosmia for another. I put that one in their living room. 

I rather liked the result and it was a pleasing moment in a long, tough day so I thought I’d share it here. I saw mum in the evening and she was sore but fine. I hope to see Porty Town Hall dressed to the nines with pretty flowers in the not too distant future.

Not Pink Hydrangea

Continuing on a gardening theme and in my function as local event sharer today I’m going to highlight the ‘Neighbouring Orchard‘ Art walk Porty Event.   Bellfield have three of the apple trees in this lovely project and I loved the 6 week art class Annie Lord ran so I’d really recommend these (free but must be booked) classes. 


Hope we can soon get back into the gardens at Porty Town Hall as they are needing some TLC. Anyone fancy getting a gardening group together to tackle that? There are a few communal spaces that need gardening volunteers. If you fancy getting stuck in to gardening, email us on hello@portobellocentral.org and we’ll see if there is something we can do.
