This is the first of a series of occasional posts that will be a sort of plot A to Z. I say a sort of as that will then allow me wander off the plot if I want to!
So starting with A Flighty’s plot is an allotment, which I’ve now had for over three years, which has provided me with such pleasure and hopefully will continue to do so for many years to come.
Grown just for show are this globe artichoke on the wild patchand small clumps of Jerusalem artichokes at each end of the plot.
One of the perennial flowers that will be among the first to flower next spring are some aquilegias, which are always a welcome sight.
Last week Martin, a retired Sunday shed helper, very kindly gave me this aster novi belgii Lady in BlueIt’s a small variety and once it’s finished flowering I shall replant it out into the ground.
With further frosts and rain during last week the only plant still in full flower is the lovely white aster (Michaelmas daisy)At home yesterday I took this photo of the golden leaves on one of the trees out back which looked wonderful in the autumn sunshine.
Addendum – Glo has generously awarded me an A+ for this post!
