Flights of fancy

Really enjoyed working on the allotment yesterday. With Iceland's volcano still erupting the only noisy traffic overhead was the honking of ducks flying to the nearby park. The recent good weather means everything is beginning to grow; the tulips were out, the rhubarb has shot up and the weeds are creeping in again... Dug over a bed and have sown some parsnips. I have never tried growing them before and understand that they can be slow to germinate so we'll have to see how this experiment goes.
