THistle Court resident and keen gardener Jim Watt contacted the Fraserburgh Herald last week about flower arrangements he had created to brighten up the garden of Thistle Court, Fraserburgh.

Mr Watt, or Skipper to those who know him best, said that he had renovated two miniature wheelbarrows for flower displays in order to make the garden a nicer place.

Speaking to the Fraserburgh Herald, Mr Watt added that gardening had been his hobby for many years, saying that he also provided residents of the care home vegetables such as potatoes and peas that he has grown.

The warm summer weather has also given a chance for the hanging baskets in Fraserburgh, created by Fraserburgh Academy pupils in association with Fraserburgh Forward with supplies from C & A West, to thrive.

The splash of colour across the town centre has, no doubt, made Fraserburgh a more welcoming place for both visitors and residents alike.
