Vic purchased some plants from a farmer, giving the locals a helping hand. So where to put them?
A Pink Phlox in the entrance garden.
A Pink Geranium in the flower pot under the Running in Board.
A Sedum Plant in Platform 1 flower bed and Box plants along the edge. Plus Aqualiga in the Picnic Area.
On the Footbridge Neal and John S were finishing off the Seal inserting and preparation for painting.
Wednesday saw the Wednesday gang appear , even they were a man down , so still low on the usual numbers .
They carried on with the installation of the gate posts an then carried on with the spear fencing down the slope.
Clive was right behind them on the brush .
Vic who was Station Assistant today got hungry in the afternoon. A cup of tea and a piece of cake in Broadway Station Cafe. Yummee!
