the last time that I spent more than a couple of days indoors as I did last week. I wouldn’t have minded the snow, which didn’t amount to much and didn’t last long, but with the temperature staying below 0 C it felt much colder due to a strong easterly wind. I’m thankful that we didn’t get this weather back in December which would have made it a really long winter, and that it only lasted a few days. This coming week is looking much better and warmer, which will be welcome.
This morning I looked round the plot for the first time since Tuesday and was relieved to see that it all looked okay. Over at the horticultural society trading shed I bought a white flowering primrose which I’ll show once the flowers have opened.
I’ve only ever come across two fiction books that are centred around allotments – Ivy Lane by Cathy Bramley and Murder Plot by Keith McCarthy.
However last week I came across the recently published The Allotment Girls by Kate Thompson which I bought for my eReader at the bargain price of 99p. I’ll do a review once I’ve read it.
Have a good week!
