We have a Flower!

The Tuesday team has, over the years, become very attached to the plant on the corner. We used to know its name, but have temporarily forgotten, but think it was planted long before the society took over the building. You can see it here, behind the sign.


Every Tuesday Wemyss would carefully water it, and ever year its flowers were celebrated.

Until we came along, and found the brickies had removed it during renovations during the week, and it had been left on the lawn to die!

Total despair.

One member picked it up, took it home, potted it up and mollycoddled it. Surely, since it had survived that long, it had to be tough.

And it was - it is in flower
