From the allotment

For one of our gardeners, one allotment is never enough.  :~))

But it isn’t all cabbages and onions.  A well-kept bed of these may certainly be pleasing to the eye, but Saturday’s cheer-up picture from the allotment is more a breath of Spring.

You can surely smell these Hyacinths from here.  Lovely!

There is absolutely nothing like a daffodil to make you feel better!  And here’s a whole bunch.

Thanks to our gardener for a snapshot of her allotment!

For everyone under lockdown, wherever you are, stay safe and stay well.

  1. Yes, hyacinths are perennial here. But, over the years, the flowers do deteriorate, until they’re less like a well-furnished loo brush, and more like a rather chunky bluebell. Do you have English bluebells? Hyacinthoides non-scripta?
    Even though the flower spikes get looser, and with fewer flowers, the delicious fragrance remains. More than once I’ve found a forgotten, elderly, neglected hyacinth by following my nose, so for my money I don’t mind that they aren’t so… tufty.
