Looky look look! My flax in the allotment is flowering! I went down at the weekend, and there are little blue flowers all over, like little stars. It's just gorgeous. It's very wet, so I hope the flax is ok - there's still a lot of buds waiting to flower, and then I think it'll be a couple of weeks until the stalks turn golden and I can harvest the fibre. The bindweed LOVES my flax - it's everywhere.
In other allotment news - red ants. Everywhere. (Shudder.)
