Blog Of The Month - February
This year, I've decided to do a monthly post titled Blog Of The Month. This is where I'm going to feature a blog I enjoy reading. Some of the blogs will be new to me, others may be blogs I've been reading for a while. I hope that by doing this, I can introduce some of my readers to other, interesting blogs, though I know that some of you will already read the blogs I feature.
The blog of the month for February is Annie's Little Plot. Annie lives and gardens in Huddersfield, which isn't too far from me. She's had her present allotment for a couple of years, but had a previous allotment in Cheshire. If you look at her recent posts, you can see how she transformed both her allotments from the bare earth she took on, to productive plots. Annie also has a wonderful garden, as you can see from the photo, but it didn't always look like this. Take a look at her very first post, and you can see how it started out.
Annie takes us out and about with her, as she also writes about visiting various gardens. Her latest post is all about the snowdrops at Hodsock Priory. I couldn't write this post without mentioning Bob, Annie's cat, who has made a few guest appearances on the blog, especially when we had snow, he didn't particularly like it, a bit like me.
I hope we've seen the last of the snow now, so that Annie and Bob can get plenty of time in the garden, and the rest of us too. If you don't already know Annie, do pop over to her blog and have a read, and don't forget to tell her that I sent you.
I'm a forty eight year old mum of two and I live on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. I've been married to Mick for twenty six years and we have a son, Daniel, who's twenty two and a daughter, Eleanor, who's eighteen. I gave up work in 2010 and now have more time to indulge in my hobbies of knitting, crochet and gardening. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow along with my adventures.
