Thanks to Ian Davies (Hoylake RNLI) for sending in a photo of the boat that will be used for planting. Situated on the grass next to the lifeboat station the Hoylake In Bloom team (their latest news) will soon have this old dinghy looking blooming lovely.
Funnily enough, I took a photo of the boat myself on the day that Ian sent me the photo although the sack of soil hadn’t arrived at that point. As you can guess from the photo it wasn’t the nicest of days – the heavy raining making that area of open ground even more saturated.
Wouldn’t it be great if this area was better landscaped? It’s a great location offering lovely views all year round and I’d suggest it should really be one of Hoylake’s best public spaces. I know it’s a topic of discussion within Wirral Council, so we’ll just have to watch this space.
I look forward to publishing another photo of the boat in the summer when the wind is light, the sun is shining and flower boat is in full bloom!
