I couldn't resist this gorgeous marigold. There's a big patch of them now, all growing where they weren't supposed to be growing, but so wonderfully bright and cheerful that I'm letting them stay there.

I've been away for a few days so didn't make it to the allotment this weekend. Now that the days are shorter, I don't get there during the week unless I'm really lucky. If I miss a weekend it can be ages between visits.

There's not very much to pick at the moment, just a bit of black kale, some over-sized runners and the autumn raspberries. I could have picked some spinach as well but ran out of time.

Some of the marigolds came home with me though and look very lovely next to the laptop as I write this!

Happy gardening (when you get the chance)
