I promised to share more pictures of some of the colourful, child-friendly tyre planters designs I found, so here goes!
It’s so nice to see several areas of back alley gardens springing up in Darwen. Perhaps they’ve been around for longer than I realise and it’s only these last months of roaming that have brought them to light; perhaps they’re the fruit of long local lockdowns.
I imagine it’s hard to appreciate how much difference little loving touches make to the way communities feel if you are not familiar with Lancashire towns. In terraced areas, neighbours count, and the ones who put a colourful planter outside their back yard walls are the best ones to live near.
