Haven’t been in one of these since I was a student. So utilitarian and perfectly functional.
Chop the base of these plastic water bottles and you have mini-greenhouses. They work out at about £1.50 each. Gawd knows what cloches cost in garden centres!
Our allotment (Tottenham Hale East + LUOS ) is an example of inspirational up-cycling.
Nothing is wasted or dumped, wooden pallets, old scaffolding planks, yoghurt pots . . . the list goes on. The only money spent is on seeds and even then people dry some for next season. (Oh, and I’ve got a few bags of ‘seized’ cannabis plant compost! Supposed to be top quality so maybe I’ll get some wacky veg!)
London has so many of these mysterious, almost Dickensian turnings, especially in the City.
Learn the technical stuff, mixing colour, colour wheels, measuring etc (Like I haven’t yet!) and just enjoy the process. I enjoyed doing these although looking at this stuff again is a bit of a jolt.
Maybe re-looking enables us to be creative critics, not destructive ones!
All that matters is the learning process.
Been intrigued by this pattern across from the Northbound line at Finsbury Park.(Honestly! Who gives a t… where it is!). Anyway, I got off the train the next day to photograph it. There’s nothing intriguing about it really, just a mixture of efflorescence and mouldy paper I imagine?
