Here in Brighton and Hove we have the only Green council in the u.k.
They do not excell at everything but one good thing they have done is to introduce wild flowers into the middle of the roads.
As you can see they have been planted with a selection of wild flower seeds so that there is a succession of colour all through the summer, and of course the bees get lucky as well.
And on the seafront an explosion of Poppies instead of the usual annual flowers.
Notice the beautiful Regency houses in the background. Hard to believe that 1 family used to live in each of these with of course a host of servants. Today they are all converted into very grand expensive flats.
