What a lovely day
« on: February 14, 2004, 18:17:34 »
Down the allotment by 9am this morning - very overcast and murky. Decided against digging as there had been rain through the night and it looked sticky, so spent my time in the greenhouse.
Felt quite pleased after I had put 150 broad beans into pots - otherwise the mice and squirrels eat the seed, and set 24 sunflower seeds as well, plus some general pottering about.
Then my morning was made complete by the sight of a local grey heron passing over, being attacked by a crow. Then a couple of minutes later, three swans flew by. All this, within one mile of the centre of Coventry. I love my allotment!

Pleased for you Derek. It has been one of those murky drizzly days here, just a few miles to the west of you. All I have managed is to get daughter to start making up some big pots of Sempervivums.  Well there is always tomorrow.

Gardening is the great leveller.

 After one of the coldest January's on record I was actually pleased to see a skunk wandering about two days ago! An animal you learn very quickly to stay away. Dogs don't ever seem to learn that unfortunately- perhaps they think they are a species of cat.
 Winter returns tonight, briefly thankfully, with lows by the morning predicted to be around -25C. This may reach the UK shortly, so expect a cold spell too?
