Just beyond where I turn to walk down to the allotment gates is this tree which really has been looking magnificent recently.
On a nearby plot it’s a small apple tree with pink buds that open blushing white that has been eye catching.
There has been some welcome rain the past two nights, as so far this month has seen less than half the normal rainfall. Certainly everything was looking fresher when I looked round this morning. The only drawback was spotting a few slugs and snails so I went across the road to the horticultural trading shed and bought some organic slug pellets, as I’m determined not to lose many, if any, sunflowers to them this year.
I came across this delightful saying this morning which I’m sure you’ll like as much as I do.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
