Urban Orchard

This morning I was lucky enough to have some time to myself to head into the city and have a bit of a wander.

Being Fairtrade Fortnight I thought I would catch to train to go and pay a visit to the Oxfam shop as I needed buy a birthday present for one of my oldest friends. I love the feeling that seems to sweep over me as soon as I walk through the door. It is one of those place I could spend hours browsing (and tasting their samples of chocolate). I did walk out with a few more things that I had planned (including a block of chocolate) including a sweet brooch.

I headed back to Northbridge, through the Cultural Centre, and stopped to enjoy some time in the Urban Orchard.

It is lovely to have something as productive as this right in the heart of the city. Although it looks a little bare at the moment, I have been there when the garden beds have been overflowing and people have been bustling around.

Take care


  1. Hey bruise mouse, welcome back after a long blogging absence! Nice brooch and love the orchard concept, must be great for the community. Cheers, Liz
