It’s been a very wet month and yet again our allotment has been flooded. The sluice gates of the River Mersey were opened and so it rushes on to the the allotment like a torrent and washes away everything in its path. This year it’s even worse than last year.  I’m particularly upset about my compost and leaf heaps. I’ve been nurturing them for over a year and all the manure we spent days digging up from a local farm and spreading on the plot, that has gone too!

Still, the sun has been shining all weekend and there are snowdrops in the gardens and banks of them along the roads and the crocuses and tiny daffodils are blooming in the pots on our steps. So, I’ll forget about the allotment for now, enjoy these first signs of Spring and hope for no more rain.
