I finally made it down to the allotment. John had more than he could carry so it was a good opportunity to take some photos. What change from when we first took over the plot John now has two beds one with green shoots and early potatoes. The other ready for main crop potatoes that were planted later the same day.
As you can see Biddle and Gardener Bunny inspected to make sure all was well.
They were looking forward to some of this rhubarb until John explained that it should not be picked in its first year.
The apple tree has some lovely blossom and we are wondering if it will fruit. It is a bit of an old battered tree so maybe not.
John had put up feeders for the birds, the one containing peanuts has been stolen. We know that because it was tied on with a piece of rope. Unless of course a squirrel untied it and took away the container.
Flushed with a successful inspection of the allotment our intrepid two turned their attention to the back yard. ( or walled courtyard in estate agent speak!) To avoid wet paws the sat on the bird cage
However gardener decided that she might get better view from the pieris
She saw an intriguing container for a tomato
newly planted sweetpeas
and a view of everything
here is the view facing the other way.
When I came home though the back way yesterday everything looked so lush and green, so much more pleasant than the yards filled with junk that surround us.
My owl cross stitch is almost completed. I am very pleased with it. It is a shame I have to post it off really.
thanks for dropping by
