Day four: rainbows and snails’ eggs

I got to the allotment at about half eight and at about 8.35am it started chucking it down with rain. I put my hood up and carried on clearing the area I started yesterday, only to make a horrifying discovery of scary white insect eggs.

Here they are – the white ball of eggs in the centre of the photo. Also, check out the bindweed roots.


There were loads of them clustered around bindweed roots and old plant pots. I had lots of scary thoughts, mainly about spiders, so abandoned that area and took photos of the double rainbow instead. My first allotment rainbow:

Rainbow over the allotments

I googled when I got home and found that they are snail eggs. Much less scary than spiders.
