Our allotments are a delight. There are Forget-me-nots everywhere (and I hope they self seed into our plot for next year) and people are both practical and quirky. I love these beach huts that are just the fronts against the hedge.
I wrote about Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell in an earlier post, to be found here, and spent a very happy hour a couple of evenings ago, listening to the author talking about her work and answering readers’ questions in The Guardian Book Club event for April. If you haven’t read this amazing book yet, it is now in paperback and really is one of the best novels I have ever read. .
