They call it mellow yellow
After a heavy rainfall on Sunday night and early Monday morning, it started to brighten up and the sun came out for a while during the morning. The rain had left everything in the garden looking fresh and glistening with raindrops. I hadn't realised how much yellow there was this year in the garden. It's the first year that I have grown so many flowers from seed, and the Rudbeckia and the Zinnias are beautiful and are definitely on my 'To grow again next year' list.
Six little 'munchkin' squashes and three round yellow courgettes.
I found the little garden gnome in the loft. It was given as a joke present to my son whilst he was at university, it seemed a shame to leave him up there, so after checking with my son if he wanted it, and he didn't, I put him in the garden.
I started this blog in November 2008. I didn't know where it would go or even if I would keep at it. But here I am now into April 2014 and still blogging and enjoying it. I still remember the excitement when I got my first comment, and now I even have followers, amazing !! I also follow and read a lot of brillient blogs and have made some lovely friends in the blogging world.
It's also very useful keeping a diary about my allotment and it serves as a personal record of my achievements and of my failures. In fact when I re-read some of my older entries it makes me wonder how I managed back then to find the time to get the allotment plot up to the planting and growing stage, but I did and I grew a great variety of vegetables and fruit in my first year, and it's just got better.

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with the golden and silver light The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams beneath your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...
