The soil temperature today was 4.5oC. This is a drop from the beginning of the week when it was 6oC. Still far too cold for planting and sowing.
The cyclamen and iris are flowering although they have gone over a little. Also, some really helpful cat had piled soil over the cyclamen. My official photographer, Warren, took some really good shots.
I had forgotten that I had planted the iris here and put the cyclamen corms over the iris bulbs. I think it made a really good combination though.
You might ask why I have these plants on the allotment. They are just things I have found in compost people have given me or a bulb or corm found somewhere. I just stick them in a corner and hope for the best. I think I got the best with these flowers.
