Sunday best

Next week all the allotment sites in Farnham will be visited by the town council judges, so I’ve been busy making sure the huerto is looking her best. It’s rather like being reluctantly but compulsorily entered into a beautiful baby competition; in love with your own idiosyncratic wayward darling, yet recognising that others better match the judging criteria. Wanting one’s own at least to be wearing her prettiest frock – and to be clean and smiley! So here we are:




The brightly coloured Tibetan prayer flags are traditionally used to promote peace, loving kindness and compassion; blown by the wind to the world (including I hope to the local pigeon population, encouraging them to find alternative sources of food to my carefully tended peas!).

  1. Stunning. I’m speechless, which I’m certain the town council judges will be.
    Love the Tibetan prayer flags.
    After two warm days, I’m just jubilant that one of my peonies opened a little today.

    Not a pretty frock, but a sumptuous gown. You are a marvel. Best of luck. You should be carried shoulder high!
