In this blog I thought I’d tell you about one of my great pastimes, the allotment, and how it came to be.
For about 15 years now I’ve been working on a couple of allotment plots with my neighbour. I got into the allotment world by complete accident. Literally!
I’d been skiing in Morzine, in the French Alps, when a freak accident had me air-lifted to hospital. Very embarrassing. I was diagnosed with torn ligaments on my right knee. Ouch!! It still makes me shudder today.
When I returned home I had to take three months off work, under strict orders from my GP. As you can imagine, time laid very heavy on my hands, and I was getting very down. So my friend and neighbour invited me onto her allotment. She said it would be good for me to get out in the open air and do something constructive. I’m glad to say from that point on, I never looked back. I was hooked!
It just goes to show you that sometimes good things can end painfully, so that better things can come together.
Anyway, I thought you’d like to see a little gallery of our allotment. I’ll blog about this from time to time, so that you can see what I’m up to on it. I hope you enjoy my little gallery of flora and fauna of our allotment, which my neighbour and I lovingly care for.
I would love to hear your comments, and please share with me your photos of your allotment or garden.
Discover your star potential.
