I watched Springwatch, 2010, Signs of Change with Chris Packham earlier this week which I thoroughly enjoyed thanks in part to good, almost understated, presentation and a thankful lack of gimmicks and hype.
Last nights Springwatch, 2010, City Living with Simon King was just as interesting and informative. It showed that there really is an amazing diversity of wildlife to be seen in cities.
If you missed either of these then it’s well worth catching up with them on IPlayer.
Next week is the Chelsea Flower Show which for many is the highlight of the gardening year, although I have to confess that it isn’t for me as I not a fan of this prestigious event.
Needless to say there is lots of coverage on TV starting on BBC 1 Sunday at 5.30pm and continuing through the week daytimes on BBC1 and evenings on BBC2. I probably won’t watch watch as much as I’d like to as both presenters, Alan Titchmarsh and Joe Swift, do rather irritate me!
What I do hope to see is the garden that Thrive, the charity that I support as a good cause, have there this year. The entry, in the urban garden category, is the Unexpected Garden which reflects the charities principles and practices. I hope that as well as an award that there is plenty of media and public interest in both the garden and the good work that the charity does.
Have a good weekend!
