The Garden and The Forgotten Plot

After a day chilling I got a phone call from a Lady about the Allotment waiting list.I put my name on it 14 months ago!
I have arranged to meet her tomorrow morning to look at the two thirds of a plot!
The Allotment or Community garden is still thriving here, after going out of fashion there are waiting lists now to get some.
I have tons of seeds here that could be grown up there. Its just behind the hospital.
I think I have enough horticultural energy to split my time between the Home Garden and the Allotment.
The photo shows the garden today, with the colours on the left, and the foliage on the right.I had forgotten that I had applied. I thought the other day my name would be fading on the dusty waiting list paper.A nice suprise on the eve of my birthday.If I take it that would be a good Birthday present. More soil to grow Vegetables and Flowers!

Happy (tomorrow) Birthday! You are a Pisces, just like me (although I am on the cusp with Aquarius, so I am half-and-half). Hope you have some plans to celebrate. What a nice surprise to finally hear about the allotment, though. I can't think of a more deserving person.

Happy birthday! Mine was today. I've noticed quite a few garden bloggers who have birthdays around the same time. Congratulations on your allotment!

Happy birthday and congrats on the allotment. What a fabulous job you have done with your new garden. I can't believe the difference from when you moved in until now.
