It contrasts to the emerald green Aquilegia below, and the Black leaved Sambucas above. The sun was shining when i took the photo.
I went to the allotment this morning and did more digging, and built a wigwam for my Runner Beans.
It was more grey today and rained a little. I enjoyed the solitude and peace of the allotment.
Later I went shopping for a new garden fork. I broke mine digging up a 20 kilo stone post from the plot. It is sat proudly now by the shed as a feature. The post has mostly rotted away.
I bought a book of Herbs, and a guide to keeping Bee's. I think books can be instructive when nobody you know can teach you.
I have planted three large pots of Asiatic Lily's and placed them by the front door on either side of the steps. They will provide a shot of colour hopefully by the Fifth of June.
A little later I will take Cat into the night garden to look for Newts by Torchlight. I am tired after my three days of allotment digging.
Tomorrow is the garden mission with Fran.
