Lovely pavement specials

2017-09-05 06:00

What are the chances that the council can be prevailed upon to resist mowing down the lovely yellow daisies that pop up all along the pavements and roadside later in the season before they have finished flowering?

They look so lovely and add joy to the day and yet it seems as soon as they are at their best, they get mowed down, apparently to control grass from seeding.

Grass seeds blow in on the wind from everywhere, as is obvious later in summer when the pavements are full of long brown grass. So why not let us enjoy the daisies while they last, and cut the grass down afterwards?

At one time the on/off ramp from the M3 to Ladies Mile used to be ablaze with bright yellow lupins. Then one year they were all mowed down while in full bloom and now there are none.

Spring is so short and so lovely – please can we be allowed to enjoy it while it lasts?
