I pulled a beef casserole out of the freezer and we will have that in large Yorkshire Puddings, the mix has been beaten within an inch of it's life and is now resting.
I felt like a little fresh air so had a meander round the garden.
This is a shady corner I love the way the new ferns slowly unfurl.
These "Granny Bonnets grow with my Espaliered Apples.
This is the only blossom on one of my Apples, and right beside it is this one, OK it was intended to be espaliered but slipped through the net and the apples are superb, it does have the basic framework but has been allowed to reach for the skies, more apples to have and share, see the Elder, that is kept for the blossom and growth is restricted. They seem happy together.
Goodness knows why.
This pear has just started to flower, while it's neighbour has set fruit, I hope that this means that the ripening will also be staggered. Just think of all those crumbles. I like them baked into a loaf cake as well, and don't forget that they go well with pork and duck, just to make a change from apples.
To finish this is the first bud on my Geoff Hamilton. A pretty pink rose with a wonderful perfume. It grows in my little courtyard just outside the kitchen and on hot days the scent fills the house. I bought it on my first visit to Barnsdale, I have returned many times and intend to go many more, each visit reveals new treasures.
It is time to get myself organised for dinner, so once again I say TTFN Pam
