Autumn Tasks

Autumn Tasks

On a crisp autumn morning, about a dozen members of Chester Garden club turned out for one final session of communal weeding and to add a farewell layer of mulch to the roses that border the seawall and roadside at the Cove Garden.

Although the air was nippy enough for jackets and headgear at 10 o’clock, the sun soon warmed the participants and by noon the temperature was quite pleasant.

One brave soul even worked in shorts. The roses along the seawall are looking extremely healthy, no doubt because of the earlier application of compost and the increased rainfall of the last few weeks.

While working at the Cove Garden, some members are easily distracted by the movement of boats entering or leaving the front harbour.
