Spring is here, the days are longer and everything is growing in my garden. I sowed seeds at the weekend - chili peppers, tomato, aubergine, cucumber and dark red hollyhocks. We visited the Isle of Wight from Sunday to Tuesday. Walking along the coastal path from Shanklin to Lake we passed several lovely gardens. In one there was a selection of small plants for sale with a note asking for the money to be posted into the letter box. What a lovely way to share plants from a garden. I bought a cowslip, a blue summer flowerering iris and two digitalis obscura - the willow leafed or dusky foxglove. http://www.paghat.com/digitalisobscura.html
I bring my garden indoors with flowers and greenery sharing the kitchen window sill and worktops.
I always enjoy visiting the Derrys Field Allotments in Woking. Here are some pictures of their Open Day.
