The clocks turned back on Saturday which means longer days, yippee! Goodbye to the evenings of darkness and hello daylight!
It’s a super busy time of year with seeds being sowed, potatoes being planted, ground being dug and lots of DIY projects on the go, so a few more hours of daylight is a welcome sight. This also means that I can pop up the allotment after work and get on with the endless list of jobs before having dinner a little later then usual.
I had just entered the allotment gate and was walking up the little pathway towards my plot last night when I spotted something red in front of my shed. I instantly knew what it was as I have been waiting for this little beauty to bloom for a few days now, and boy oh boy was it worth the wait. Unfortunately all the other tulips in my galvanised tub had been munched on by those pesky deer so it looks like this might be my one and only tulip this year. However, this one little flower made me smile and it made me realise that its always the small and simple things that make us the most happy 🙂
