I took this cosmos photo last Wednesday then put it on Twitter, where much to my surprise it has since been liked over 600 times which is far and away the largest number I’ve ever had. Among the flowers was this red one which I rather like.
One morning during the week a couple of young robins briefly appeared on the plot, and I’ve seen the one which has it’s red breast just starting to show several times since then.
I also stood for a while and watched this big bumble bee buzzing round the flowers.
Last week was National Allotment Week and Alice at Walton’s emailed to ask if it was okay to include me in their blog post Amazing allotmenteers you have to follow ! Needless to say I was delighted to have been asked.
Take care, and have a good week!
