Allotments in the Snow

Snow fell on Bedfordshire today, it doesn’t snow very often here but when it does it usually settles. I couldn’t resist getting the camera out and visiting the allotment.

Snow makes everything look so fresh and bright, it makes my shed look yellow rather than cream!

The air was fresh and invigorating, and it was eerily quiet at the allotment today but I rather liked it.

Poor old frozen scarecrow

I love wandering around allotments looking at other plots, not just on my site but others too. Each plot is different in its own way and I love that, from the slightly ramshackle to the neat and tidy magazine-worthy, I find all allotments equally beautiful and inspiring. Today in the snow the plots all looked exactly the same, each one a blank canvas and magical.

I took my dog along with me for the walk, she’s 11.5 years old and starting to slow down a bit now but she had such fun racing around the community orchard, I don’t let her off lead while we walk around the allotments, not that the other plot holders mind.

After taking in the peace and serenity I made my way home, with a rather tired dog!
