Salford Quays, 22nd November 2018
Christmas is coming……
We might be in November, but we’ve had a bit of festive decoration arrive on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal today
A number of brightly decorated snowmen, have found themselves stood around and about in locations at Salford Quays. From The Lowry to Mediacity UK, They’re all based around Raymond Briggs’ original fun character and have been decorated by local children and young people in the area.
Its Been a buzzy few months for local artworks as previously we had Bee in the City land in Salford as part of the Hive in Manchester. When they flew to pastures new, the Snowmen paid us a visit. While the Bees raised money for the We Love Manchester Fund, This time all funds will go to BBC Children in need
Feel free to comment on the snowmen I’ve captured….I’ll post more as and when i find them.
brought out of the hive
everyone is smiling at them…
each one bringing colour to the street
if you walk through the city, you’ll see
numbers of them by
the terraced areas of the city, their
hive now used by the residents to soak up the sun
each bee happy of the attention they get
Congregated in well known areas, the
Insects bring a smile to
Those who pass by,
Yelling to the youngsters – “You al’right our kid” ?
could it be, the first signs of spring
out of all the signs of Mother Nature that
leap out at us,
of all those signs, green leaves appear and
radiant colours join them in the
form of beautiful blossoms … whilst
underneath them ?

Very striking – you stand out in a crowd
In fact, your flower heads offset the other colours in the border, from the
Orange of the marigolds surrounding your stem or the
Lemon yellows of the pansies nearby
Everyone in the garden, enjoys your colourful view, as
They pass you walking on the garden path
