Spring is here

IT’S SPRING and look what happened to the plum tree!

I love berries and I’m pretty equal opportunity, I’ve got blackcurrants, redcurrants, golden raspberries, red raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. 61 more words


Flamboyant Chive Finale

Chives are one of our favourite Herbs.  They treat us to lots of lush green flavour  packed in  clumps from April onwards.  Every so often we treat them very harshly and chop them right down to ground level….but before you know it it they are back in full rich fresh growth once more.  The chop always comes before the Chives send up their flowers.  But come September we reckon they deserve to flourish and flower for once each year prior to  autumn and winter dieback….and what wonderful flowers they are, each bud swelling and bursting into lots of tiny stars.
