I hope this isn't vainglorious but as it was a sunny day

I thought I'd take a few pictures of my plot. I have annotated them, to give you a better idea of it.
This is one of the delights, as I have a view out to the hills and the town

Here I'm looking in the other direction. Several pictures as I step downhill and more or less northward, looking more or less east, a bit towards the south.

And lastly, down in the lowest part, I keep this section as "open field" rather than beds.

Excellent pictures, Stephen, it is nice to see what other people are up to......I just wish other peoples plots, wouldn't look so much better than mine, though.... :)

I love pics of people's lotties & if on holidays & pass a site find myself directing Mr Westi back for a quick peek. I love the fact they have a personality, some are ramshackle, some pristine, some grow things I can't identify; but even a posted pic or sneak peek I see something that I have finding myself saying; 'Must remember that' or 'What a great idea'! I rarely do actually remember unless really different so as I get older I can see myself the allotment train spotter with notebook in hand.

Must remember to introduce myself though if carrying a notebook or the plot holders will think I am the council inspector! :) :)
