Short lived scorcher

Saturday morning started off as though we were in for another scorcher but it didn't materialise as by lunch time the wind picked up moving into a cold north easterly direction bringing cloudy conditions.

Planting continued on the plot. All our plants are planted into holes that have been filled with water as the ground is very dry. These potatoes are starting to flower and I reckon the plants are struggling to find water and this may be resulting in them flowering prematurely as I expect the plants to be much more developed before they flower.

Our bullfinch made a return to the bird table today to pick over the remains of sunflower seed left by the goldfinches. The light was fading a little, well that's my excuse this time for not getting a better picture.
