Floral Display
Each year passes and a huge effort is put into beautifying Portadown. Unfortunately each year the town is overlooked when the prizes are handed out for these displays. Despite this the people of the town appreciate the enormous effort put into this.

This picture was taken the day before the block of four shops in Mandeville Street was razed to the ground to enable redvelopement of the area. The demolition took only a day to remove these derelict properties.

Ox Eye daisies
These wildflowers were once a common feature in towns and villages throughout Northern Ireland. Due to changes in agricultural methods, and the use of chemicals, they have greatly declined. Our reliance on herbicides and similar products have been a disaster for our nature resources and the environment.

I have no idea what the name of this plant is. It was growing wild in a railway embankment hedgerow and comes out every year.
