It makes a welcome change to enjoy sunny, warm weather at Easter!
I see plenty of crows hereabouts but I’d never seen any on the plot until this one, and another, walked along the top edge on Thursday morning.You can also see onions, rhubarb, aquilegias (bottom right), love-in-mist (on the left) which has Jerusalem artichokes and a few poppies growing through it and michaelmas daisies (on the right).
I was there early on Friday morning and saw a fox on a nearby path, although when it saw me it stopped then turned tail. It’s the first one I’ve seen for ages and it’s good to know that they’re still around.
Plot neighbour Joe kindly gave me two lots of lupins a couple of weeks ago, and it’s noticable how much they’ve grown since.
Earlier in the week I removed the two old teasels that were still standing and cleared round the new ones. These are such impressive plants when fully grown, and great for wildlife.
