Images from my life - catch up...

There has been lots and lots of these...

And broad beans (my absolute favourite food)...

All of the cats are useless at shelling peas...

Tiny tiddlywinks garden had poppies large enough to live in...

Flowering and seeding...
The sunflowers did their usual shock treatment on me, I mean, imagine that in leather!

The wild strawberry harvest has been HUGE even if they are small...

Peg from Mr Fairysteps shaving horse...
And because I LOVE this little tool that he made so much... another...
 
We had tea up in the garden last night...

Time to use the new trivet that Mr Fairysteps made from a pile of old shire horse shoes...

And because I had picked a bucket of blueberries the day before the day...

It had to be blueberry griddle cakes...

Finally...

Middle Tiddlywink is travelling in Cornwall with travelling friends in a Gypsy wagon. She is of course in her element and so I was happy to let her go. They have been on the road for sometime now and travel with horses to sell quite often. When she had the offer of going with them for this time a little cloud seemed to have appeared under her feet... how can you resist such happiness?
We put her on a train at Exeter last Tuesday and think she might be back for a few days later today. Then she is off for another week or so on Friday to help drive the wagons to The Lizard for a music festival there. I think we might join her the weekend after next.
She is living like a wild Borrower at the moment, tramping the lanes, living out of a very small bag, probably NOT washing, (not sure if this matters if shes having fun) but river dipping has been mentioned... and driving heavy horses, helping to train a stallion ready for riding (this was the main reason for the trip, riding this horse across the sand and into the edge of sea), sleeping under canvas...


I rather envy her... but at least I get to enjoy it through her joy.

Back to MY reality... workshop for me today, train station hopefully later, followed by child squishing and tears of reunion...

  2. Oh wow, I'm envious too! MT sounds like she's living an adventure out of one of the books I loved as a child! What a wonderful experience, and yes, wonderful memories too, to take home and share. And here I must admit, with embarrassed, downcast eyes, that I don't think I've ever eaten a pea freshly shelled from a pea pod. But I have had fresh broad beans from the garden...lovely tossed through pasta with butter and pepper and a little basil!

  4. I love fresh peas.... But they usually don't make it to the pot here I love eating them fresh off the vine..;).
    I love sunflowers too, but every time I grow them the parrots and Cockatoos love them too. They don't look quite the same with a net over them.

    Yum blueberrys I have a heap in my freezer from berry picking last summer. I might just have to make some pancakes with them too...:)
