Hooray! Today is the Winter Solstice and I am welcoming it with open arms. It’s the shortest day of the year which means one thing, the daylight hours will start increasing and we can start to spend more time outside.
I love this time of year but I am longing for Summer, not only the heat but I’m missing the amount of time I could spend up the allotment pottering away in the shed and watching the bees bumbling around the plot. Time has been hard to come by since the nights have been drawing in, in the Summer I was up the allotment until 10pm and these days it starts getting dark at 4pm, whilst I’m busy working. Which means evenings and early mornings were out of the questions and it left allotment time for the weekends only.
So here’s to less evenings working up the allotment in the dark and to more time in the glorious sunshine!
Happy Winter Solstice everyone x
