Despite it being noticeably colder this week it has remained dry and sunny so I’ve continued plotting. This morning there was a cold northerly wind so to keep warm I dug out and sieved a barrow load of compost. I occasionally stopped to watch the robin finding plenty to eat. I added this compost to couple of barrow loads I dug out earlier in the week and had put out of the way under the blackberry bush.
Looking round a now mostly bare plot a few days ago I was rather surprised to see that the crocuses Romance are already starting to show above ground.
Another recent surprise was seeing a flowering dandelion on one of the grass paths. On Tuesday I noticed that the seed head was frosted and sparkling .
There’s heavy rain due tomorrow, followed by bitterly cold high winds on Saturday so it looks like I’ll be armchair gardening rather than plotting for a couple of days.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
