Hello - today is a wet one - rain pelting down although first thing this morning there was a break in the weather - so we made a dash to the allotment to pick the latest raspberries - the wind had dried them up a bit so they were ok to pick - also there were even more courgettes to pick - they appear over night and also grow to gigantic proportions at the drop of a hat - if picked small they are absolutely gorgeous fried in garlic butter - I buy the little sachets from the supermarket.
Well it seemed the thing to do - out with the utensils and a crumble was underway - I used the windfall apples that I had collected this morning and gooseberries out of the freezer - a gift from a friend and this mornings fresh raspberries.
It looks OK but they do say that the proof of the pudding is in the eating - or something like that!
I looked through the window at the coloured lanterns looking so forlorn in the rain - and remembered those sunny days a few weeks back when the plants needed to be watered -
but certainly not today!!
Candles and lanterns both favourites of mine - they do it for me - make my day so to speak - I love garden ornaments - especially fun ones - the orange clock was picked up from the local garden centre for a nominal sum - what do you think?-
