Latest news

First the giveaway,And the winner is.... Michela from Venice in Italy! Well done Michela! She's quite new to blogging Take a look at her beautiful garden!

I've been in the garden this evening picking blackcurrants before the birds eat them.

I don't usually hack off the branches, but the bush is becoming way too big.It was planted by the previous owners of the house, right next to the built in BBQ, so it also means we can't have Barbies in the garden until the fruit has ripened! Do you think it would be possible to dig up the bush and move it?
For the past 2 evenings I have been picking the fruit and flash freezing it, ready for topping Pavlova's and cheesecakes!
Hubby makes the most gorgeous baked cheesecakes! Here's the evidence!

I have been making lots of hearts for my stall and my little blogshop which I have updated this week.Today I have added hand knitted brooches.I love making these in lots of different yarns and colours.

Enjoy the sun everyone, but don't forget your suncream

Currant bushes don't do so well when moved, they tend to go int o shock and it's 50/50, but all you can do is try - just wait until late autumn when it is going dormant. Saying that, new currant bushes aren't expensive - you could just replace it with a new one if it dies.
Lovely blog,
