Busy busy

Last Saturday was our 17th wedding anniversary. We had a quiet day pottering around and visiting the allotment. Well John went and I called in later. He had rigged up a bird feeder holder using recycled stuff (who needs a posh one?) Of course Gardiner Bunny had to check it out.

The beans seem to have survived the move and are beginning to flower

Biddle has been helping to tidy up and did not get stung once chopping down nettles.

Over on the original plot the potatoes are coming along nicely and should be ready soon.

I had some lovely gifts from John

The Hungry Caterpillar is a magnetic bookmark

We have had visitors in the back garden

I think they are Cinnabar Moth ones. We have had them before. They are also very hungry and have been munching away.

It has been very noisy here over the last few weeks due to renovations along the street. Apart from the noise the downside in that the mice move on. Tia has been busy sitting and waiting. She was finally rewarded and has earned her keep once more. No photos of small furry dead things though.
just as I uploaded this I received a text saying new pots with flan today! This is what John brought home at lunchtime

Just one root of early potatoes. Cannot wait to try them.
Thanks for coming by
