And not a single red leaf in sight.

I have spent this season transitioning to a new allotment site (details to follow). I have been digging a bit and then waiting to see what sprouted; predictably it’s been mostly weeds.  So, to see these pop up and flower their herbaceous socks off has been a welcome reward for my efforts. I admit I was getting a lonely, surrounded by a sea of brown clods and patches of bindweed and nettles.
