Painting and fettling planters

We repainted the green wooden planters around town, we had some new volunteers this time, and got the job done in an hour.

And we fettled some of the others (in case you're puzzled, fettling is a old Yorkshire word meaning putting something to rights, making it just right, in fact putting it into "fine fettle".)  So in this case it meant taking out dead plants, picking out litter, trimming and tidying as required.

And afterwards we had coffee and some delicious flapjack - thanks Katie!
