Radish & Buttercup

the allotment is looking fantastic. the wet april followed by the latest hot spell has greened everything up and the radishes have grown quickly and are ready to eat. the wild spaces between the well tended beds are teeming with buttercups, foxgloves and bluebells. the garlic is growing strong and some careful investigation showed me they have grown some lovely big garlic bulbs. i weeded among the potatoes and around the garlic today, it is so nice to be out in the sun and in the allotment.

beach hound

recently came across this cheeky fellow on north road, a beautiful example of street art, and amazing detail considering its made entirely from sand!
