Must say the work being carried out within Sydney Gardens on regenerating this historic park has already made a great difference to its appearance. This really is a green jewel in the city’s open spaces crown.
However, what bugs me at this time of the year is, just as the narcissi and crocus plants begin to make a glorious colourful showing, the dogs – not on leads – are busy trampling through them.
What is the point of bothering to plant these spring bulbs if they are going to enjoy such a brief display before being laid waste?
This is a space for everyone and not just a run-free exercise yard for our four-legged friends.
