The Bags

Not without some seriously teeth gnashing moments.
But I am inordinately proud of these.

The contrasting pleats and lined straps are very natty.

This pinny

arrived from 1950's Wales and provoked a rush of domesticity

in the form of this soup taken from a recipe in Resurgence

and this loaf using flour from here.

Happy Anniversary

If not actually disgruntled,
he was far from being gruntled.

Whisked into a time wharp

only an hour's drive away
but it could have been a hundred years
for some servicable brushes
a basket of twine

and this fabric for new projects, from a proper draper's shop.

A lovely bright, breezy day

so I went for a walk and saw
quinces in a basket

supper on the fishmonger's slab

these dahlias

and these views

Useful, Beautiful or...

just plain amusing, which an aubergine with a pigtail most certainly is.

An empty bird feeder is neither useful nor beautiful

So following a useful reminder from Anna, I filled the feeder,

and within minutes I was able to take these very bad pictures of

a robin

and a blue tit. How do they know?

Leaves from the morning run

Startling colours on a dull day.

French apple tart

Do these look familiar?

Waste not, want not.
