First Sunflower of the Summer!

Today at gardening club we discovered that one of the sunflowers had finally flowered over the weekend, much to the delight of the gardeners. Apart from admiring the sunflower, we also planted three courgette plants and a butternut squash in one of the raised beds. There was of course plenty of weeding and watering to do too!

Physical Geography Photo Competition 2014

Flooding near the River Ouzel
What physical geography can you spot in your local area? This is a competition for students aged 11-18 organised by the Geographical Association. To enter you must take a photo of the physical geography in your area and submit your shot with a caption describing the photo.

The theme is: ‘physical geography around where I live’. We know that physical geography is all around us wherever we go, but often we don't stop to notice and really look for what can be found in the neighbourhood - so here is the perfect opportunity to go out in your local patch and discover some physical geography near you.
