I’ve been using the beautiful summer evenings we’ve been enjoying recently to get out and explore our new area. Working from home can send you a little bit stir crazy sometimes and it’s lovely to down tools and set out completely aimlessly to potter about and see what Portishead has to offer. Last night on one of my wanderings I stumbled across Beach Hill allotments, which has to be up there with the most beautifully situated allotment sites in Britain! I had my camera with me and couldn’t resist sneaking just inside the gate to take a few snaps of the gorgeous hollyhocks and Bristol Channel beyond.
Having my own allotment is a long-held dream of mine, but with waiting list of four years for a plot, I think it’s a dream that’s going to continue for some time yet! In the meantime though I do have the joys of my first ever garden at our new home. Keep an eye out for a garden makeover update very soon.
