We have an allotments just over the road from us, and whilst I don’t have an actual plot (because I wouldn’t have a clue what to do, or the time to learn) I do love to go over and walk Puggy, admiring the flowers, and the vegetables that people have spent time cultivating. It’s very peaceful over there, I can see the draw to having an allotment, although I think most people are retired and have plenty of time to nurture their plant kingdom.
We may be experiencing an indian summer with temperatures still hitting low twenties, but it is only ninety seven days until Christmas (sorry, not sorry!) I am all prepared for the crisp mornings, getting my jumpers and boots on, I just wish the weather would catch up, it’s all very confusing! With little over a month until halloween there are pumpkin’s galore, the leaves are on the turn and it feels very seasonal throughout the allotment. I took my camera with me to take some photos of the array of wonderfully bright colours, rich reds, oriental oranges, yummy yellows and every shade in between.
