Upsides and downsides

A fine Sunday morning, not sunny but warm at 14C, a good day to go get the newspaper and on the way back, call in at the allotment trading hut for the latest goss.  Along with the latest news, I picked up a few shallots, replacements for the failed ones on the plot and put them in.

I pulled the first rhubarb of the year, a lovely ruby red.  That is the pudding sorted!
Mmmm!  Rhubarb, gently stewed in its own syrup served with a large dollop of vanilla ice cream melting over it, can't be beaten (except maybe by rhubarb crumble and custard, but which I am too lazy to make)

 That is one of the many up-sides to spring, another one is all the spring flowers and blossom  I can see from the window.

The downside is that the grass needs cutting....
