Allotment update...

There’s something about tilling the soil that moves me, calms me, consoles me.  Being outside I feel free, even the weather on Sunday doesn’t dent the desire.

Hail falling like snow, mid- May for goodness sake.

This is the allotment today, a hodge-podge of treasures and my wild imaginings. 

From this


To this...


and this...



just wish everything would grow now... it is so blooming COLD!

  3. I'm glad you're enjoying the allotment. Gardening is very grounding isn't it! You've made great progress so as you say, now all we need is some decent weather. It's heated up here a bit but with lots of showers. Good for the soil, not so much for me! x

    1. So many plans, so many plants, so little growing weather, just wet and cold. My up has never been more fed!
