Please send any pics of elevated greenery of Bangor Seafront or

Ards Francis Street to – info@jgm-ni.com 

Having worked on many roofs in Bangor Town Centre & Newtownards

I kind of assumed that Bangor Seafront had the edge as far as Roof

Gardens go but as I regularly go to Ards I have noticed recently that they

too have a few gems.

All anyone really has to do is take a stroll down Francis Street…(and

look up of course) I just came out of the Barbers today and found this

beauty across the road. Note the natural back drop giving it extra depth.

These chimneys also on Francis street use a more restrained theme yet

the added variety of this particular one gives it a more rounded

overall depth.

 This Chimney only a few yards away has gone for the 

“Mountain with a tree growing out of its shoulder look”

which is simple yet quite effective.

Ards

Someone recently tried to imply there was more Craic in Ards?

But even though my Father was born in William Street Ards.

I must say I would find that statement intellectually flawed.

But less than 5 Miles down the road we can see some real big hitters here 

on Bangor Sea Front and you can clearly see we are moving up in class 

with this formidable display of the “Desert Island Tidal Turf” look which

Which is very much in at the moment “or is it out”? Its certainly very

current (Strong current?)

The long Beard effect is achieved by the torrents of rain cascading off the

back of this Bangor Seafront haunted house.. (I wonder does the gutter

need cleaned?) But top marks must go to this…..

 Buddleja davidii on Bangor Seafront

Buddleja davidii (spelling variant Buddleia davidii), also called summer

lilacbutterfly-bush, or orange eye, a flowering plant from central

China, and also Japan. So this one seems to have come via China and

probably through a hundred Pigeons before the one who ate

it on Southwell Road and later “planted” it here in this very gutter to

be nourished by its winged mentors daily. Ipeak shape and form in Aug

this decadent context convey drama and tragedy steeped in irony beside

temporary metal box’s paid for by the people of Bangor replete with bored 

Artists looking for something to paint.

This picture of Queens parade lays out a much fuller context of the story of Bangor

Seafront than any whitewash ever written in the Bangor Spectacular. Below we can

see the same Buddleja in context with one of these “Box’s” “Project 24” “Art

never sleeps” In reality – “Nature never Sleeps”

                                                  Revival

We’re all hoping for a revival. like these Palm trees which had clearly been through

a few local pigeons then imprisoned in this seafront gutter before being rescued by

Bangor Seafront Belfast Builders Roofers

a local builder (seen below in the back of his van) and taken to new home in White-spots. 

(A mates Garden) gives hope to us all 🙂

As you can see here below, most of these Cordyline Palms have now found a

new happy home in part of Kyle Wilkinson’s(KW Coach-Finish) Garden at

White Spots were Kyle runs a Sanctuary for Homeless or Sexually Abused plants.

Here’s a nice Bramble Plant on Holborn Avenue off High Street Bangor. I

wonder (since most species are hermaphrodites) will we be able to make

some Jam soon?

Hey look there’s the Ferry! No wait a minute the guttering has been

replaced, No wait a minute the Bramble has been removed Crikey they are

really prickly that must have been a big job – must have used scaffold for

that one? 

 OK so what about this amazing pic from the back of a “House”(for want of

a better word) on Holborn Ave Bangor Co Down – just in today 10th Oct

2014. This was taken from the roof of house next door.

I will try and get another couple to get a better idea of whats really going

on.

Hard to believe this is Holborn Ave?

 

At Bangor Seafront Development we find the aptly named “King

Street” in all its glory. We can clearly see that these guys don’t need

Sunbeds to thrive.

This is becoming a cake walk for Bangor

There was some big Newtownard’s talk about plants growing up through houses in Court Street Newtownard’s but nothing Materializing yet? Actually talking about Cake there’s a nice Coffee Shop a few yards from here? what’s this they call it?KING STREET, BANGOR BT20 3AH Roofers Builders Holywood Belfast Helens Bay Newtownards

Holywood 

Hey this came via email without a name. Well at least it puts Holwood on the Holywood Roofers Garden Map

And this other one was sent from basically across the road. What is it with Tanning Studios and roof plants? 🙂  Keep em coming – still no sign of any Roof Plants of Court Street from the big talking Newtownard’s poster! (Make that Boaster)

It’s actually the Bangor side of  Francis Street but what about this couple of  totally amazing pics from Mr Kane in Ards? Is this a possible winner? Certainly has that End  of days – Ebola / Disaster / Back to nature vibe about it. Certainly a bit of class. 🙂

This Bangor Marina shot has gotta be in the same ball park?
And what about this Bangor Pic? Any one know where this was taken?
