Allotment stories

Allotment stories, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

Went up to the allotment after a stressful day this evening and just tinkered about, pruning here and gathering fruit there. Cleared out the pea patch ready for winter vegetables and gave the tomatoes and cucumbers a long hard drink. The onions are doing fine drying out in the shed.

Harvesting the onions

Harvesting the onions, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

I get so much enjoyment out of sketching and recording things. We got an allotment in April and now were able to reap the rewards. We harvested some of the onions over the weekend and strung them up in the shed (after doing this sketch)

North City Library Community Project

I tried to introduce a bit of deliberate symbolism here. I get the impression that the building is infusing energy into the book shelf and subsequently the cultural outreach in an inner city area.

Yesterday, I was invited along to join in the fun at the North City Library Community Photography Project and it was great to mix with others and see how they interpreted the building. All the Manchester flickrites should check out the next event and try and get along to photograph this wonderful building which has helped regenerate the Harpurhey area - more about the future events at the 'I Love North City Library' pool.
