Down on the Allotment - July

It's unwise to neglect your allotment for a fortnight at this time of year. All the vegetables may be thriving (especially the round yellow courgettes that are the size of melons) but the weeds are really doing well and are suddenly waist high! Therefore this month's post is composed of a few close-ups of the more photogenic subjects. Next month I will have done battle with the ever present fat hen (the weed) and all will be neat and tidy (yeah right!).

Runner Beans
Globe Artichokes

First Blackberries

Butterfly in the Marjoram

Pale Yellow Sunflower
Mixed Cornflowers
