Surprise finds at the allotment

 Look what I found at the allotment today! I have some flowers growing among the fruit trees but no poppies - and certainly there aren't supposed to be flowers in the cabbage patch! 
It probably proves I haven't weeded as well as I should have.
It isn't really in the way though so I'll leave it to flower, then try to collect some seed.

And here's another surprise I found in the plastic greenhouse.
We thought all the grape buds there had been frosted in spring but chopping back the leaves today I found a couple of bunches still growing. Hopefully now with less competition from greenery, they'll swell and ripen

  1. AHH grapes I like them but they don't like me too much.
