The allotment has a different look about it already. John went at the weekend and cleared a patch of high weeds and some of the rubbish.
I will use the apple tree as a focal point over the weeks so we can compare
In this first photograph the tree is just visible
He donned the leather gloves as there is an awful lot of glass among the foliage, the remnants of a greenhouse. He is going to concentrate on one patch and try and clear some of the roots. Not surprisingly he ached on Monday morning. My contribution. I photographed the progress and Biddle and Gardener Bunny came to help
Sewing wise I have finished a Christmas gift, the elephant jumper is almost done. I worked on Monday so it still needs a collar. I have also made some fabric containers I bought one at a sale many years ago and thought I knew what to d but did find a blog with a tutorial to confirm it. More of these at a later date.
I have kitted up my Christmas ornament swap. And think I have chosen an owl for another swap.
Its raining today but I was surprised how warm it was too. The plants needed it and so did the water butt.
Thanks for coming by and for the comments
