On Thursday morning this robin appeared as soon as I arrived to look round the plot.
For much of the time it was less than arm’s length away. The dark smudges on it’s forehead and left flank looked like damp earth.
This morning was rather damp and dull so it all looked a bit dispiriting, although it was good to see a fox crossing the roadway towards the other end of the site. I’ve not seen any for ages but know that they are still around.
I then went on to the horticultural society trading shed to renew my membership for this year, which cost me the princely sum of £1-50. Over a cup of tea and some cake I chatted with the others about Christmas, the weather and the sad news that a long-standing member had died last week.
As I mentioned recently I’ve returned to the team of shed stewards, after an absence of some years, but my first stint isn’t until the end of the month. By then the onion sets and seed potatoes should be on sale so it could be a busy morning.
Have a good week!
