Winter Returns

Today has been cold and miserable here in West Yorkshire and the sun has not even put in an appearance today - perfect weather for digging in the allotment, managed to plant the sweetcorn too and my allotment neighbour gave me some cabbages as l have not grown any, l am fast running out of space and will soon just have small spaces and gaps to fill in.

On with todays card - a quick simple one but the daylight is rubbish again and the flash came, this does not make for a good picture.
