Plotting

We’re over the moon with our new allotment: it’s in the parabola – an old walled garden in the grounds of Hadspen House. It’s a completely magical spot.

Our real first job is to prepare the ground for planting, but as there are a number of wild and naturalised flowers out at the moment, I took the opportunity to capture them with my camera this morning, in case they get lost in the planting process.

OK I know some of them are only dandelions, but they’re beautiful nonetheless! Snowdrops, celandines, forget me nots, bluebells, primroses, comfrey and more I’ll have to get my wild flower book out for…

Outside the allotment site itself were some amazing fritillaries – one of my favourites.

Problem with having an allotment in such an amazing spot is that it’s hard to do anything other than gaze in wonder!
