I haven't been to the allotment since the 1st of the month and on that day I didn't even take my camera, just took a few shots with my phone. There are some in the May folder I never did get around to sharing - those of how well 24a was doing. Maybe I will put a map and story together this week but honestly I can't promise anything.
So to ease my frustrations with this big pancake batter of a brain, dripping with treacle and these heavy hands and eye lids I am going to fight until I have a record of some of the general beauty that's over there in our space. I really want to share them, it makes the whole thing 'real' to me.
Here are the brightest, most interesting ones from back on May 31st
Maggie with her eyes closed and beard flowing in the breeze; A big clump of mushrooms from the horse manure we had around the raspberries; blueberries coming!; 2 slightly different versions of the California poppy, on the same plant; underside of a mushroom - they are so unusual...
Here are the ones I took with my phone the day after -
Broad beans - so many healthy plants; super poorly honeysuckle - yuck; a net cage around the precious blueberries :) and my stunning purple huge poppy (thanks to my bestie, Rosemary)
beetroot, every other one (Andrew says they are huge now and I can do it again), I was happy to do more than weeding (thanks to not working so much on 14b) I wanted to have a treat but all I had were dog biscuits, so... Maggie got my treat :)
*************I'll try to write again on Thursday, oh lordy, I feel so behind! Plus on top of developments on the plot I have some gorgeous photos of a National Trust garden Andrew took me to on Sunday there - a real head clearer..and Maggie was so happy!
Love and hugs - may your potatoes be blight free!!
