On the mornings…

I was at the plot last week I cleared, then forked and weeded, the main flower area .

Most of the plot has now been done and  just leaves a few small patches around the edges as yet untouched.


The white asters Twinkling Stars are now well past their best as are the sedums. Once they’ve finished that will just leave the white and yellow primroses in the longer planter as the only flowers.

The robin continues to be my constant company whilst I’m there, mostly eating and watching whilst I work.  More often than not it’s now only inches away whatever I’m doing, and I can hear its whirring wings when it comes and goes.

With what I’ve cleared along with grass and leaves the compost heap is nearly full but I hope to now make a start slowly emptying it one sieved barrow load each morning I’m there.

Take care, and have a good week!

  1. There’s always something to be done on an allotment, and with the weather so mild you should be able to get a head start for next year if it continues.


  2. You are so well-organized! Applying compost is something I know I should do, but is somehow beyond my current order of business. The twinkling stars asters look pretty still, even if they are past their best. Surprising to see the primroses still in flower. I see pansies being planted in flower beds here (in Kentucky) right now.


    1. Liz thanks, I like to think I am. Never mind, as they say it’s the thought that counts! They sure do. These primroses flower from from late autumn through to the spring. I’m not surprised. xx


  3. Lovely to see the primroses still flowering, they go on and on! Compost bin is full here as well, and lots of leaves still to go. Hope you have a good week. CJ xx


    1. CJ these only started a few weeks ago, and will go on right through to the spring. it’s the time of year when they fill up, and same here. Thanks, and you too. xx


  4. I think your primroses look nice.

    Pleased the robin is still keeping you company.
    I bought some Christmas Cards recently and they had a robin on the front 🙂

    Hope you are having a good week.

    All the best Jan


    1. Jan I’m glad you like them. So am I. Good for you, I usually do but the charity I buy my cards from didn’t have a robin one this year.
      Thanks, so far so good and likewise. xx
