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.
Whoosh! That was October… didn’t that fly by? And here we are in early November, the first frosts making the garden sparkle in early morning sunlight, turning frost tender plants such as nasturtiums to mush. It has been raining an awful lot too!
… and harvesting too! All of the hard work sowing, planting, watering and weeding has paid off and my garden and allotment is glowing with abundant fruit, herbs, flowers and vegetables. I can hardly keep up, what a lovely problem to have!
