Years of Living Dangerously

Obviously I'm pretty dissapointed that Harrison Ford has forgotten his hat, but otherwise Years of Living Dangerously (US TV meets climate change) is surprisingly good. Also just surprising. I'm feeling pretty lucky that Wivenhoe has escaped effects from climate change so far... It seems others haven't been so fortunate.

Down on the allotment today...

Our community plot, no 1, is right on the  SW corner of the allotments site, next to the footpath, so we have lots of great chats with passers by.

Rhubarb in the foreground
Some fading daffs.
A gooseberry bush, with other fruit bushes hidden by phacelia - a green manure with fantastic purple bee attracting flowers yet to come.

T'other side of the shed, the lovely new pond where for the first time I saw a great big fat frog today.

The pond plants are thriving...got
another water butt fixed up today.
Join in on the first Sunday of the month 2pm to 4pm or get in touch.
No experience needed, we're all learning together :)
