Many people have commented on the superb job that Menstrie Community Council have done with the wild flowers they planted by the roadside at the western end of the village.
It would be lovely to have a similar installation in Alva. Grow Wild are offering thousands of free seed kits in order to create wild flower gardens all over the country.
We would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in creating one in Alva.
Thanks to our friends at Alloa Community Council who spotted Grow Wild on twitter and brought it to our attention.
