going to the plot in the mornings generally around nine o’clock, and sometimes earlier in the summer or later during the winter. However at this time of year it’s often cold and dull first thing but warms and brightens up by late morning so on days like that I have an early lunch then go. Yesterday I got there around one o’clock and spent a pleasant couple hours working until the sun disappeared behind the nearby flats.
Over the years I’ve tried growing various flowers in this area by the dogwood without much success so I’m pleased to see that these pot marigolds have not only grown there but are still looking okay.
I don’t recollect them flowering but hopefully they’ll survive the winter and will next year. It’ll be nice to have some colour on what has nearly always been a bare patch.
Have a good weekend.
