Spring at last....

It seems as though while we were on holiday on the Northumberland coast spring arrived. We had a lovely week walking along perfect sandy beaches watching Oystercatchers, Eider Duck, Sanderlings, Curlews, and most exciting of all, a Barn Owl at dusk floating over the dunes.

We got home on Saturday and on Sunday suddenly the sunshine was warm. I started work at the allotments, clearing a patch of couch grass. Got quite a bit done, but I'm aching all over now!

Today I finally got the chance to do a bit of seed sowing. In the propagator I've now got -

Celery leaf
Mixed lettuce
Red Russian kale
