Christmas lights in the garden

No offence Runnybeak, mine are the tasteful white lights that gently glow in the evening light, while you are sipping your cool glass of Chardonnay, and admiring the roses. lol

I have some solar lights on my pear tree all year round, trouble is our garden is quite shady and they dont stay on for long in the winter.

I put some fairy lights on my indoor Dragon Tree and they stay on all year round as they look so nice!

Great pics Fruitcake. V.sad about the lady and baby, you must be right near the bridge?

Did a bit at the allotment yesterday, added some more muck to the beds and staked my broad beans.

Could'nt do too much, as the horse I ride did his bucking bronco impersonation and put my hip and back out a bit. Luckily I did'nt come off, but  a hot bath was very necessary last night

We have quite a few taps on our site, they encourage us to fill our water butts with a hose pipe or by using rain water off the sheds, and to use watering cans (pretty standard council policy). We are on a meter but are not charged for our water.

Managed to squeeze in an hour on the plot yesterday for some more digging, I had some foxgloves and primroses spare so I put those in. Gave a few foxgloves to Carol (who has the plot near the entrance) to put in the flower border that runs along the main path next to the disused railway embankment. She had spent all afternoon weeding and tidying it. Its an area thats hit and miss, some allotmenters put a lot of work into making it nice and others just leave it weedy. I will sort ours out when I have time, its a good area to use excess plants from the garden.
