Good lord, I have done it! I have updated the 'What we are doing' page of my website and it now has two pages - September 1 & September 2 - of bits and bobs; there is our recipe for sloe gin and a piece on drying herbs. As ever, I would like to stress we are not experts here, just a family who enjoy having a go and hoping you will join in.
On the subject of sloe gin, the picture at the top shows one of our very first bottles we made together, dear Mr Davey and I. We haven't opened it yet as it seems such a special bottle and though we have made and consumed many a glass together since the making of this one, I doubt any will ever be quite as romantic to me. I think we will wait till we finally get married (yes, another thing we haven't managed just yet as we want to have our own wedding field which we can turn into an orchard for the children and grandchildren to play and camp in, to enjoy picnics and make new memories...oh ok, I'll stop, but that's what we want!) and take it on our honeymoon.
Back to the website, I have also updated the 'Where we are' page as I hadn't quite got hold of the fact that it still showed our garden in late Spring! Golly, I really do try to keep abreast of it all, but I am so fussy about the site that it takes me forever - how many times can you change the colour of a font before you are happy with it for goodness sake! Still, I think I am pleased with it now...I think...
And I have included this teasle (teazle?) merely because I think it looks amazingly alien-like. Isn't nature wonderful?
Have a lovely day x
