• An Olympic Effort

    The Olympic Park

    I’m not referring to the work being done to prepare the site for the Games, but to my recent visit to the site which, was less than glorious.  Eight hours door to door to see lots of brown earth, some newly laid turf and a few patches of wildflowers and finally get roughly 10 minutes information from someone who knew a bit about the planting.  It took over one and a half hours to just get onto the site which involved two full body scans and the donning of steel toe-capped boots, high viz jackets, protective glasses and gloves.  We then caught two buses and ambled around with guides who weren’t even aware that we were members of the Garden Media Guild. I’m just hoping the Games are a bit better organised.
