Allotment in September

A quick visit to my allotment provided me with some lovely late ripening fruit and a chance to check that everything was ok up there.

Above I let a sucker from a floppy stuffy rose grow out in preference to the man made variety and over the course of 1 season has provided me with much more interest than the cultivar could. Look at all the lovely rose hips! Im hoping for even more next year! I did wonder about what I could use them for- but havent found a recipe that has interested me enough yet to try so left these for the wildlife.

The Globe artichokes flower heads had just gone over but are still looking beautiful and hopefully will provide some birds with some food.

I got my first and only pear from my small tree! Im hoping for more next year! :)

The sunflower seed heads were placed on the compost heaps and its easy to see were a hit with someone! Either a bird or mouse has come and pulled them up and eaten them there and then! Great to see!

And lastly a surprise for some very late strawberries! They were delicious!


I went to the Museum of London to see the new Pirates exhibition all about Captain Kidd.

And even saw an original Jolly Roger which I learnt was red as opposed to the black flag you associate with pirates these days.

The rest of the museum is amazing and would highly recommend a visit over to the docklands. Its very pretty round that part of London.

Saw a lovely Tortoiseshell Butterfly soaking up the late summer sun!

What happened to October?!

Sorry about the gap in the posts- the last few months have flown by!

Ok so its actually late November- so i completely missed out October!

What happened in that month? Lets see what I can remember!
