Rhubarb Festival Eve
I will be going either tomorrow or on Saturday to buy some tender forced rhubarb,and to enjoy the other stalls that will be there.Its going to be cold so I hope there is lots of hot food and drinks for sale.
I bought two new lots of Rhubarb to grow up at the allotment.I will dig up the old crowns and replace them with these young plants once they have grown a bit.I have two younger crowns that are growing away now between the grasses and weeds!
I wander if these flowers originated there before being sent to Britain.They are like a Rembrandt picture.
It has got cold again today.February always lulls us into thinking spring is near and then the artic winds and snow come back with a vengeance.At least I have some flowers to keep my spirits up.
