I haven't posted anything lately as I was very busy with my allotment. This is my first year of having it and I am a complete beginner. So amongst reading gardening blogs, taking photos and watching 'Gardeners' World' every Friday, I was way too busy to learn than actually having the time to post. I won't be getting into details about successes and failures, but one of the unpredicted consequences was that I ended up with a prolific crop of courgettes.

We were so lucky to get an allotment last year in summer and because it was too late in the year and wildly overgrown, we only started to work it this year. We got some seeds on sale from a local garden centre in autumn to get ready for planting this year and when the lockdown restrictions came, I knew that gardening would keep me busy. But one thing that I didn't have enough of and could no longer get were planters. Internet is full of inspiration and you are just a click away from the next idea for your projects. So here are my solutions as inspired by other keen gardeners and recyclers.

Take the lockdown isolation, gorgeous weather and an eagerness to experiment with drawing flowers, my sketchbook started to look rather colourful these days. I am not doing it in the hope to transform the sketchings into paintings, but for capturing the flowers from my garden on a different media other than a photo. Not to mention the practising factor which I have been doing rather sporadically lately.
