Abingdon Co-op in Bloom

Time passes and the Co-op site has begun to see blooms moving back in to colonise what appears, at first sight, a poor habitat:

rosebay willowherb

buddleia (with varieties enough to form a National Collection)

evening primrose

sunset glory...

I got it wrong earlier this year predicting work would start on the Co-op in the summer. The summer is almost over, and this area is fast becoming an area of special scientific interest.

It always amazes me how buddleia will colonise even brick walls as well as abandoned sites.

The buddleia at the Co-op is prolific. It seems to be different kinds.

It seems a very long time ago that I bought some cheap plates and bowls from that CO-OP in their closing down sale - because it was!
I'm starting to wonder if it will ever be rebuilt....
