I have never actually dedicated a post to anyone … I wonder why? 😀
But as Bill is leaving on Sunday and given how busy he has been cooking meals for us, making jams and jellies, picking and freezing fruit and generally being a top bloke, I thought I would – although I hate to say he has stopped doing my ironing!
Bill’s famous salad .. tastes as good as it looks!
Yes he will be greatly missed, his two mth sojourn literally flew past.
So in no particular order, just a few pics current and a couple from the library of our ‘super man’.
Harvesting those damsons
Hauling the harvest
Even doggie helpers
Damson tree in the late afternoon sun
Oh look at that haul
The helpers return – father, son and dog
Plum jam .. my larder is full, jelly too
Panna cotta with white chocolate and rosewater
As this is a gardening blog I think it only right that I should mention that my garden is doing very well thank you. The green shield smelly foul things are back, hanging off beans, corn, tansy anything they desire. Did I say I love squishing them? The corn is climbing skyward and the tassels are dropping pollen onto the silks .. perfect!
The orchard is nearly bare which made me smile when I spotted Mrs Turkey and her kids, meandering around the trees the other day .. too late!
It’s that time, leaves are slowly turning colour … my favourite season is on its way.
A huge THANK YOU to all you wonderful people that follow my blog – I have finally hit 500!
