It’s about time I took another picture of the allotment from up here in the herbarium, but a passing raincloud has just made it so dark and wet that you can see the lights reflecting on the pavement at the Museum entrance. The plants are loving the April sun and showers though, and I think there’s going to be plenty of things for the allotment volunteers to be tending. The rhubarb is getting bigger, the little broad bean plantlets are growing strongly and all the different varieties of mint are beginning to explore new areas of the raised beds.
The green roof also had some work done to it over the winter and is beginning to look green again. The shed is now sporting a nice selection of ferns in amongst other low growing plants.
