News
Another week of sunshine. Too much! Mind you, looking back over the years I seem to associate fine weather at Easter with a crappy Summer. Then again maybe global warming has added another dimension to that. For now, let's just take it as it comes and soak up some rays.
If you are thinking of tackling the garden this weekend Wexford Tidy Towns wants you to "Bee Friendly". WTT has launched a project to raise awareness of bees and the role they play in pollination. If bees did not do this job it simply would not get done - flowers wouldn't bloom and fruit wouldn't grow. In fact tell the kids that if there were no bees there would be no chocolate! Ask at your garden centre for flowers, herbs, shrubs and trees which are bee friendly. Read up on the "Bee Friendly" project at
www.wexfordtidytowns.com.
