Garden escapes

A number of garden ‘escapes’ grow on the lane, including geranium, grape hyacinth, columbine and spanish/hybrid bluebell. There are also some flowers, particularly spring crocus and a daffodil species which have at some time been planted deliberately along the lane and provide welcome spring colour.

These former may not be true ‘escapes’ as various residents of the lane (or their gardeners!) chuck garden waste etc there from time to time. These have included the remnants of a number of Christmas trees over the years which some enterprising people have collected and propped up against an Osier to form a wigwam style den.
