It wasn’t sunny most of last week but it was dry and relatively mild so I did plenty of general tidying up on the plot.
Much of the bottom vegetable patch is still very sticky in places but it was better at the top flower area where I dug some it over. That attracted the robin(s) after a tasty worm but much as I tried I didn’t get a good photo of the gardener’s friend. This was the best one where it’s sitting on top of a sunflower stem.
On Friday I got my first sighting of something using the new pond, which was a wood pigeon having a drink.Sadly these are just the opposite to robins as they are pesky birds on allotments and in gardens.
The crocus started to flower this week bringing some much welcome spots of colour to the plot.
Taking nectar from a purple one on another plot was this bumble bee.
This is one of several groups of daffodils which are spread around the plot, and should be flowering before too long
There were also several of these which I have to admit I can’t remember what they are!
