This time of year is one of the reasons for my being noticeably moochy at present. Thankfully there have been some bright spots which have lifted my spirits.
Elaine, A Woman Of The Soil has kindly given me this blog award. My thanks as they’re always nice to receive, and I shall be mentioning it, and her, again in a forthcoming post.
As you can see I was one of the surprise present winners over on Allotments 4 All, which is to do with the members Christmas donations to Greenfingers. The parcel arrived on Thursday but I won’t be opening it until Christmas day. I shall be doing a post about all this early in the New Year.
Watching the birds at home during the week has been a real delight as they have included a pied wagtail a couple of times, which was feeding on the crushed peanuts in the food I’d scattered on top of the brick pillar.
I went to the plot this morning but didn’t take any photos as it’s all looking rather bleak. Instead I turned round and took this. It’s been ages since I last saw a rainbow, and I don’t think that I’ve ever photographed one before.
Tomorrow morning at the trading hut it’s the horticultural society Christmas party, with free food and drink and a raffle. Last year I won a couple of prizes, including a Sainsbury’s £5 gift card which I’ve only just got round to spending on a tin of Fox’s Wonders, which are an indulgent collection of luxurious biscuits covered in milk, dark and white chocolate.
Have a good Sunday!
