I’m sure I can safely say that gardeners here in the UK will more than happy to see the back of this month which, apart from anything else, has been far too wet. I had to laugh, and indeed sympathise, at Wellywoman’s comment on my last post where she said…I’ve even started to get bored with me whinging about the weather. I’ve read that for parts of England it’s been the wettest January since records began!
I did the Big Garden Birdwatch but only saw small numbers of a few birds – blackbird, blue tit, chaffinch, magpie and robin.
Talking of birds plot neighbour Trevor recently told me that he thinks a young female sparrowhawk has taken up residence in the trees down at the far end of the allotments. If it has then I’m certainly looking forward to seeing it.
Hopefully February will be a better, that is drier, month as it’s now starting to get lighter and we’re all getting just a little bit more impatient to get plotting again.
Have a good weekend!
