Allotment 9 Eileen's flowers

This is a photo of the allotment of the lady who gave me tomato plants & beetroot seedlings. Her name is Eileen & I think she won the 1st prize for Best Kept Allotment!

For a lady well advanced in years she does very well indeed! She once told me she has worked growing veg all her life as her father was a market gardener. She told me she & her husband managed two allotments for many, many years till he died & she found that trying to run two was too much for her.

Hats off to the lady and thanks to you for posting such a beautiful picture.

I couldn't resist much longer - it looks so nice! She's a very friendly woman & we have had some good conversations.

She has made a beautiful feature to the edge of her allotment...the colours are so spectacular. Thanks for sharing it with us, Balcony.

Yes, she has made a very nice feature of the end of her allotment! I thought it was well worth posting on here!
