The allotment never fails to cheer me up and after a very hectic weekend and the next 4 weekends looking near enough the same I decided to head up to plot 15c for a bit of garden therapy. And by garden therapy I mean sitting on the shed step for half an hour listening to the rain whilst sipping a nice hot cup of tea… it was heaven.
Mr Frog was also there doing just the same as me (except the drinking tea part!) The raindrops were bouncing off his little head but he seemed completely and utterly happy, plus the pond is looking beautifully full and vibrant with at least 4 water iris’s in bloom.
The rose bush is putting on a wonderful display right now and has started to bloom, I’m a tad happy that I didn’t prune it hard because it looks stunning next to the shed, if not a little wild! The potato plants have surfaced and need earthing up, a job for next week when we get back from our next show. Plus whilst I was there I decided to harvest a few more radishes to have for a special lunchtime treat. They are coming up perfectly now and the next row has lots of leafy goodness, I’ve been sowing them in succession so I’m not completely overrun with them seeing as it’s only me and my Dad that likes them!
That small amount of time up the allotment was just what I needed and although I’d like to spend every day up there right now I simply can’t. We’re heading off today to Chelmsford to set up shop at the National Flower Show for the weekend and we’d love to see some of you there!
Have a lovely weekend everyone x
