Ops!Tiny Tuesday .. Shadows

Quick, the sun's come out ............. snap, snap. The love-in-the-mist were the first plant I spotted. I pulled the dead plants up from the ground, popped them on the lid of a water butt, & got a few pics before the sun disappeared in behind the clouds again.  I've got little patches of flowers growing in amongst the veg. Pot marigold, nasturtium, borage, & Love-in-the-mist. All good for the wild life :) 
I was up the allotment cleaning the ground, pulling up the spent sweetcorn plants, courgette plants, 3 tiny courgettes salvaged, runner bean plants pulled out, canes & hazel sticks down & stored. Hubby was tidying the wood shed, storing more wood, making room for me to move more cuttings onto the salvaged pallets. Hubby left me to it. A turned some ground, lifting some nuisance weeds ... dandelions, & thistles mainly.A glorious afternoon & early evening, quite a lot achieved. Picked my first rainbow chard off the patch.
Took Mum shopping earlier, we're out again tomorrow.
Back home I made dinner. Fish & prawn pie with a rainbow chard base, cod, prawns in a dill & caper cream sauce, topped with hard boiled egg, finished with mashed spud, with the last of the courgettes for me, runner beans for hubby.
