Spring is in the air at St Georges

Residents at St Georges in Bristol enjoyed making fat and seed bird feeders to attract more birds to come into the garden. They mixed and put ingredients into nettings added nuts, seed, and other bits and bobs the birds would find delicious.

The bags were then hung onto a garland which had already been made and hung the whole thing onto a tree outside the home for birds to enjoy.

Not only does it mean getting out in the fresh air and being active it also stimulates the senses, allows us to interact with nature and the feeling of pride when a project comes to fruition is immense.

As the weather is getting better – fingers crossed – and the evenings longer it’s time to get out into the garden for pottering, planting and watching the wildlife.

Many of our homes took part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch and enjoy feeding the birds all the year around, others are planting and preparing their gardens for Spring and Summer. Yet more do flower arranging inside the home with residents.

So with all this hive of activity going on we can’t wait for Spring to fully arrive.

St Georges is a modern, purpose-built care home in Bristol. Located in a quiet residential area three miles from the city centre, St Georges provides specialist nursing care for up to 67 people.
