sunshine!





Finally!
The sun has appeared.
We were treated to the most spring like of Saturdays, and it was blissful.
Charlie and I headed up to the plot to drink in the sun, be deafened by bird song and dig in the soil to our hearts content.
My boy raked a small part of the plot to a fine tilth ready for sowing seeds.
He worked so hard enjoying the time just being there.
I gave that piece of earth to him.
His small part of the allotment (the area with the best of soil and the most sunshine).
He sat there contently planning in his wildlife finder folder.
Eating bread sticks in the sunshine.
On his list....  a watermelon tree, flowers for decoration and a chicken house.
Happy days.

    1. Hi Li, yes the plot will always make a come back during Spring/Summer. We kind of get bored of it when the weather is rubbish. Fair weather gardeners are we!! Have a great week. x

  3. That sounds like a really nice way to spend the day. I bet it's a good feeling to see your boy working away and interested in how things grow.

    1. Hi Emily, It was a wonderful feeling thanks. It's taken us 3 years to get him into this frame of mind. In the beginning they used to really moan about being up there... now it's just second nature. x

  5. Good little Charlie- I wish my girls would go down to our plot without getting bored and annoying after about 30 seconds! Looks like the sun's out today too, yay!

    1. Hi Charley... they will. We have found that they need to eat and eat when they first arrive there, not matter if they've just had their breakfast. I think it relaxes them and allows there mind to slow down. Once they've eaten they soon find a digger or a tree to climb. How about your willow den? x

  7. Wasn't it amazing? We arrived back to Bristol from cold, damp Poland yesterday, and couldn't believe the weather! Looks like another cracker today too. Looking forward to reading about your plot, we've got a little garden to grow things in for the first time this Spring, I'm excited but pretty nervous as I'm a total novice... Any tips for a new starter?

  8. Looks totally blissful. It's nice that your boy like to garden. My two year old mainly digs stuff up - i usually garden while he's napping!

  9. I'm rather jealous that you have an allotment – always quite fancied one (well, not always but maybe for the last few years!) That blue sky is just gorgeous too... roll on some of that in Scotland!! :)
