well hello! this is a test using Windows Live Writer to try to add tables of photos and generally speed up the blogging experience! As you can see we have had a week of Arctic weather here in Blightly. Minus figures at night and day and plenty of great snow for snowmen and sledging! However this week coming is the great melt (and half term) so all will be back to normality.
These rather greener pictures were taken the week before the snow when it was just freezing and are of my new allotment patch! I am insanely excited about it but have promised Stokie Bloke I won’t spend all my time there or abandon his lovely raised beds at home. It was worked last summer believe it or not and has lots of raspberries and a ginormous rosmary bush along with tin bath, compost heap and wonky leaking shed! Bliss. I am planning what to plant there now and have ordered some lovely seeds from the Real Seed Company to start me off. Roll on Spring!
