A couple of hours on Thursday was spent weeding, but definitely not speeding!
Yesterday was a glorious still, sunny and warm day. I wasn’t really in the mood to do much so after digging over the patch where I’ll be sowing beetroot, carrot and lettuce seeds sometime soon I spent the rest of the time having a good look at everything. I took lots of foliage photos which I’ll try and put together as a slideshow post for later in the week.
This is the view that was missing from the Round the plot post which shows the bottom half of the eastern edge from the compost bin to the old dustbin incineratorOn the left are the strawberries, raspberries and blackberry and to the right of the daffodils are the comfrey plants which I’ll leave to flower as the bees love them. The onion sets are planted in the patch on the right.
Walking home past the flats that overlook the allotments plot neighbour Bill was weeding his tiny front garden. I stopped to chat and he said that he had something for me. It was a large packet of wild flower field poppy mix which he was sure that I could use.
Sitting on the low wall we noticed that a Peacock butterfly had settled on the nearby flowers and I was quick, and lucky, enough to get this photo of it!
