Shortly after turning left onto the Lee Navigation from Duckett's Cut, with the Olympic Park dominating the east bank, we came across a lot of purple on the opposite side.
It was obvious where to go for more information, so I looked up leabanksquare.blogspot.com and found a thriving community in Hackney Wick.
We all love Leabank Square -
and want to see our lives here
improve day by day.
They seem to have a thing about the colour purple, and have made a Purple Garden with a heavy emphasis on recycling. Not that you can see much of it from my photos.
Just today they were holding a Purple Garden Open Day for people to meet the gardeners and find out how the garden started.
I'm not sure about the "seed bomb" aspect, though.
