IT'S easy to shut your eyes to what's going on in the country at the moment, but for a bit of beauty in your life just have a look around as you pass through Wirral.

At the moment there are three outstanding features of beauty that have certainly cheered me up.

The roundabouts at either end of Ford Hill full are full of gorgeous meadow flowers.

The lovely gardening project outside the shops on the Beechwood Estate and the amazingly beautiful and colourful displays of plants and flowers around Wallasey Village.

All so pretty and uplifting.

And what makes it extra special is there has been no vandalism to spoil them.
