MORE BOUNTY - NOT FREE THIS TIME: Not content with apples I bought these yesterday and was busy preparing them for the freezer as well as the remaining apples from Wednesday. I think word must have got round the local wasp community too since I did them under constant barrage from wasps!!
SOMERZEST - YEOVIL: Friday evening we went to Somerzest a free craft and food exhibition at the Octogon here in Yeovil - the evening was fine and there was music and a hog roast - well actually it was buns with roast pork inside not actually a BBQ or anything! The crafts on offer were varied and beautiful - thought of you Lesley as one lady did the most beautiful nuno felt. I didn't like to try and take any pics though. I came away with this bag of bits of semi felted merino scraps, not sure what I will do with them any ideas? It was the colours that did it!! And we bought a piece of cheese so last of the big spenders us!
RECIPE for those who requested the recipe for the apple cake here it is:
Let me know if you can't read it and I'll type it out for you Helsie!
This is the book it came from - another oldie although this one is only from 70s so a relative newbie!!
BADGERS: Fot those of you who said you wished you had badgers visiting your gardens - here is why we don't really welcome them. Last night they did this...
...and the night before they exposed all the roots of this rosa rugosa on our boundary fence which we have now filled in again. With acres and acres of woodland between us and their set they still think the grass is greener this side of the fence! Bit like us I guess!
AUTUMN MORNING: Yesterday morning when I got up this was my view from the bedroom - lovely autumn sunrise....
I happened to look up as we went into town to the Farmers Market yesterday morning and thought if we were abroad we'd be taking photos of this sort of thing and saying how lovely the towns are.....
SWEET PEAS: I DON'T think we shall get many more sweet peas - to think that we didn't have any when I posted here but we have since had a small posy every other day for what seems like weeks. Their stunning colours and amazing scent made them worth the wait.
PS I notice that this post is dated Friday 27th which was when I started it but it was acutally finished and posted on Sunday 29th - not that it matters of course but in case you wonder how I knew what I did on Saturday on Friday if you see what I mean?!
