Narcissi Delight

Lots of the little narcissi tete-a-tete on the allotment today – very cute indeed, if tiny.

There are other taller daffodils coming along too, but they’re not ready yet!

Maybe next week, eh, LOL!

The tulip bed is looking grand and I’m really excited about that one. Can’t wait to see them in bloom.

We were also surprised to see some of the alliums I planted on the off chance are on their way too, which is great. I do love alliums.

No great changes in the autumn raspberry & summer soft fruit area, but I’m sure the rhubarb is coming along:

Can’t wait for the first rhubarb crumble of the season, but I don’t think it’s going to be soon.

Our harvest today has been the leeks (which haven’t done very well but smell amazing) and those narcissi (which look really lost in that tea towel …):

However, at home, I found a tiny glass and now think the narcissi look pretty good in it – I’ve put this vase on the dining room table to brighten up mealtimes.
