Cuckoo!

We heard one this afternoon! It sounded like it was across the marsh. I love to hear them, though they are very naughty birds!! We also saw two swifts (or maybe house martens) swoop into the carport next door to the allotment site.
As you can see, it was a busy visit to the plot this afternoon :-) We were so surprised to be in lovely warm sunshine we thought it would be a shame not to make the most of it!
This alien-looking thing is one off our tulips... It should be a proper flower very soon...
We shredded lots of paper this morning and de-needled the remainder of the Christmas tree for the potato planting tomorrow. We also sieved some compost and potting compost for the potato bags.
This is another of our finds on Plot3 ...
Man-made or natural?
I can't tell...
Oh, and this is one of our onions. Most of them have sprouted, but you have to get close to see! At least it shows they're alive.

    1. I've been listening out for the cuckoo but not heard one yet. Saw some swallows when Sam was here.
      I'm not sure about the artefact...
