Rhubarb

The rhubarb is ready for picking and this is my favourite recipe.
I've got just two oranges left on my small tree, it has cropped really well this year.
The roof beams in the greenhouse are hanging with Maricel Neil roses. It's planted in a pot and has made good growth since arriving in the post last year as an unpromising looking dry root.

The flowers are soft and floppy and held on spindly stems. They are a bit tricky to arrange in a vase because the heads tend to hang down.
But dangling overhead they are a delight.

    I absolutely love rhubarb I blame my addiction on my grandma, who grew it in her little garden, and treated us to rhubarb and custard every Sunday.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.
    *drool*.
    Stay well.

    1. What a nice memory to have of your grandma, Jo. I remember my grandmothers delicious homemade lemon curd tarts!

  2. Lovely roses. I am the only one here that likes rhubarb, needles to say I only get it when a neighbor takes pity on me.

  3. The roses look beautiful! What is their scent like?
    I like rhubarb but would have never thought of combining it with orange, what a great idea.

    1. Ah, sadly there is little in the way of any scent. Looks AND perfume would really be something.
      Using forced pink rhubarb makes this a very colourful as well as tasty recipe.

  4. I haven't had it in forever, in fact, I'm not sure if I ever did. I want to say I did as a kid, in a pie. But I can't be sure. Love that you grow oranges.

  6. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
