It's that time of year again... The daffodils and crocuses are out, and Spring always seems to come slightly earlier in Kennington. (According to members of the Kennington Gardens Society, Kennington has its own unique climate, allowing warm termperate plants that might not grow in other parts of London to flourish here). Anyhow, the arrival of Spring heralds another open day at Roots and Shoots.
This coming Sunday, from 11am-4pm, Roots and Shoots are holding "Sounds Alive for Spring", where they'll be specially celebrating Spring noises such as croaking frogs, dawn choruses etc. They'll have a story-teller-in-residence telling tales from Lambeth Walk and all sorts of other fun things to do for the family. More info at the Roots and Shoots website.
I've lost count of the number of Roots and Shoots events that I've attended, and they're always great fun and a fantastic chance to go and have a look around the Roots and Shoots Garden in Walnut Tree Walk. (It really is possible to find a tranquil haven and escape from the traffic noise in SE11).
