rain, jack-by-the-hedge, the invisible college

Lots of rain in the night and early this morning. Welcome news for the garden and allotment. (Sowed carrots, beetroot, parsnip and French Breakfast radish yesterday.)

I love the freshness of jack-by-the-hedge plants at this time of year - photo above shows the leaves, a flower head and a friend. The plant is edible, apparently - see the excellent naturessecretlarder.

Heard an ad on Radio 4 for a new creative writing programme, The Invisible College, presented by Dr Cathy FitzGerald. The first episode is tomorrow 4 pm. Sounds interesting.
