Tracking the seasons

For a while now, I’ve been meaning to keep some note of the seasonal changes around here, mainly so that (in theory at least) I can look back in the future and see how things compare to previous years, and also hopefully get some idea of planting times for the allotment.

Well, when I was walking Gizmo yesterday I noticed, for the first time this year, some purple weed (I’ll try to identify it tomorrow) and forget-me-not growing alonside the allotments. Meanwhile, the main crop of daffodils seem to have started dying, all the plain yellow ones are looking a bit manky and only the narcissi seem to be still going strong.
