a rather typical Easter weather-wise with rain tomorrow then dry, dull and slightly warmer. Thankfully the wind, which was gusting at over 40+ miles per hour for much of Tuesday has abated. When I looked round the allotments yesterday I was relieved to see that my plot was okay, and surprised to that see all the daffodils were still upright. I’ve not done much this week apart from planting out the Kestrel second early potatoes. Looking round it’s pleasing to see all the new growth such as the comfrey and raspberries. Sadly the recent wet and windy weather has meant that much of the blossom to be seen out and about has already gone but during the week I noticed this eye-catching pink and white flowering skimmia japonica. Happy gardening and have a good Easter weekend!
