Splash of Colour
That was quite some storm that came through yesterday, torrential rain in the morning and very strong winds through the day and night. Needless to say there were a few more blooms from the gladioli to rescue. They certainly add some colour to my kitchen. At this time of year there is always a large bowl in the kitchen with tomatoes, peppers, courgettes and fruit gathered from the garden.
The wind brought down a whole load of plums and apples, Paul raked them up this morning and put them in the compost bin. A curious dog would easily get his nose stung by wasps if we left them on the ground. There were still plenty of plums on the tree for me to pick. I am very tempted to make the German Plum Cake suggested by Tigger (Tigger's Wee Blog) or Jenn’s Peach Pie recipe (coffeeontheporchwithme). Watch this space.
Kat is moving around more easily now and accompanies Paul and Rick on their afternoon walks. Today they walked up to the reservoir, the water level is still very low. Rick would have loved to chase the ducks lined up on the opposite bank.
