Oops, I forgot to post the winner of my Lavender & Bees Notebook giveaway. I actually did the random number generator thingy earlier today, but then got on with some sewing instead of blogging. Hmm, such a butterfly brain at the moment.
The winner is.... the lovely Kate from the very pretty and most readable Harmony and Rosie . Actually, I do recomend you go have a read as kate has some lovely pictures of a recent trip to Cornwall for you to peruse.
Thank you all for entering and Kate could you please forward me your details to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get the notebook off to you. May well do another one soon, but in the meantime I have been drying herbs to remind me of summer when the weather is grim (!!!)
Scoffing loads of courgettes and tomatoes laced with garlic, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and gorgeous herbs from the garden.
Picking pounds & pounds of our own scrumptious greengages
Beginning the blackberry season with ones from our garden before raiding the hedgerows. We are blending a bottle of last years blackberry wine to a bottle of reduced price Merlot to make the best red wine ever. Everyone old enough to imbibe is obsessed with it as it has the most gorgeous rich, fruity flavour, full body and is just amazing, plus each bottle of mixed wine costs us £2.00 per bottle! We are planning to make gallons this year.
Picking pretty flouncy sweet peas
Doing a lot of sewing
and generally just enjoying chilling out. Of course, a little more sun would be most welcome. Not asking for much am I?!
Bye for now x
