Colours of Autumn…

Monday seems to have come around very quickly! We’ve had a lovely weekend, enjoying the weather and Autumn colours. I love going for long walks at this time of year 🙂                                                Hope you had a happy Halloween… We’re spending lots of time on the allotment this…

A place to relax

It’s only taken us 6 years… But this week we’ve finally made a start to our garden.  We never use it, it’s part stone, part weedy/muddy grass… Well no more! We’ve dug the grass up after our friend Eric came to give it its annual (yes annual!!) hair cut 🙂      We wanted stone all…

Drip Drip Drop

Life In Watercolour

This isn’t an allotment related post really, but I wanted to share with you something that I’m very excited and happy about… My very talented friend Tracy Robertson is such an inspiration to me.  I learnt so much from her when I was studying Graphic Design at college.  Tracy has asked me a couple of times…

The Changing Seasons

I love autumn, it’s a really beautiful time of the year.  Lots of bold warm colours, the pavement scattered with nature’s confetti.  My favourite seasons are autumn and winter.  With the clocks changing and the darker nights drawing in fast, all cosy and warm indoors, I’ve been thinking back to how the allotment changes throughout…
