Peas and beans!
I cook the veg with just a few tablespoons of cider vinegar, some brown sugar and lots of nutmeg. I think it's possible to freeze it but there has never been enough left to find out!
For dessert we had blackcurrants from the freezer
in a very simple recipe from one of my favourite cookery books.

and Himself continues with running repairs,
painting sheds, clearing the gutters
Old friends are re-appearing, this abutilon was a snippet from my parents' garden.
And now that the tree peonies that are under cover have finished flowering those that I planted outside are coming into their own.
In fact they are looking so healthy that I think I should be brave and plant them all out.
How do you fare with tulips? Each year a number of mine get eaten by the squirrels and I've never yet had a good display. Colours appear that I never planted. I seem to have the most success with white with just a few other colours surviving in a rather lonely fashion here and there.
I DID NOT BUY any bright red tulips!
But mostly plants flower, year after year, just the way that they should!
