Wildlife Activities

Last week we had a staff training session about the Wildlife Activities Andrea and Paula have been developing. I’m in the Gardens most days, but I rarely slow down enough to really see the Gardens.

My favourite activity was to notice the smells of different plants. The lemon balm (which I mistook for mint…) smelt so fresh. I try to notice the developing smells and colours of the Gardens each day as a result. I hope everyone can experience the Gardens at their own pace, too.

Many of the plants smelt beautiful. Sadly not all flowers smell nice, as I found out after shoving my face into a plant with a bit too much vigour.
