Lucy who blogs at Loose and Leafy, has a theory "that in every street there are flowers and lawns and trees and . . . it's just a matter of adjusting your sense of scale and looking for them." These aren't the trees and shrubs planted by the council ... according to Lucy, 'they don't count!'; street plants are the ones that have seeded themselves and are growing where they really shouldn't be.
Today I felt in need of some fresh air, so I took myself off for a quick fifteen minute walk around the estate to see if I could spot any street plants. I didn't think I was going to be lucky but on the way back home I spotted these three.
