Robins, compost and weeds

In the UK no bird is more associated with wintertime and Christmas than the robin. I have the good fortune to enjoy the company of two of these charming little birds: one in my front garden and one at the allotment.

December dawns

Early on the first day of the last month of 2020, I walked to my allotment and was treated to this spectacular sunrise. What a beautiful start to a new month. The day was cold and clear and blue and sunny until around 3:30pm, a real treat.

A big adventure

There are going to be some big changes here over the next few months: I will be leaving my garden and allotment early next year because I have sold my house!
