Climate Change, UK Climate Change

 The UK is enjoying some wonderful sunshine despite it being the middle of November – long may it continue as this makes the UK winter seem so much more bearable.  I have been taking photos of the many beautiful flowers still gracing our gardens and public spaces to illustrate the effects of our rapidly changing seasons.      In Bristol the horticultural  delights of the city seem to be in harmony with the protestors camped on College Green. This is the largest protest site outside London and has been in existence for 34 days during which time the weather has been fairly mild .Apparently protestors are building wooden huts ready for the predicted chill this winter.

In London I noticed these wonderful roses competing with the bold colours of an IKEA building.

Good to see that nature can still dominate modern day life! 

                                                         Wonder what the IKEA carbon footprint looks like?

 Found this information on their website about sustainable forests and recycling. No mention of the fact that they create consumer demand for mass produced products that are transported around the world. Environmentally aware appears to mean many things to certain companies?

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
