All that glitters is not only gold but golden beetroot!
Small but yummy 🙂
On Sunday, me and Angela visited the Forbidden Corner in North Yorkshire.
It’s a tourist attraction which is 4 acres of follies in a rural setting, the countryside surrounding it is really gorgeous and you can spend AGES in the maze getting lost!
Statues, doors that lead nowhere, fountains that will squirt you as you go past, tunnels, stepping stones….
It’s like Narnia, Alice in Wonderland and a weird dream all mixed together! (Although I didn’t take many pictures of the bizarre stuff, I actually focused more on the flowers and herb garden which will be in the next post).
It’s that time of year when things are blossoming and blooming and everything is turning into a gorgeous shade of green. Suddenly, almost as if overnight, trees burst into leaf, fields turn golden and flowers are opening up and everything is light and bright with the good weather.
Today was spent happily weeding at the allotment, some things are a bit behind this year due to the weather, so some places do look a bit bare, but a few weeks and all will be covered and green!
And since Word press is playing up and I don’t seem to be able to caption the pics as I go, here is a brief one beforehand. First up are chives (with Mr Bumblebee photo-bombing the pics), then lavender, strawberries, garlic, redcurrant bush on the right and (tiny) blueberry bush on the left, beetroot, horseradish – which has taken over, and finally rosemary (had no idea the tiny white flowers were so pretty on a rosemary plant).
[These photos were taken with an I-phone and no filters applied – it was a really gorgeous sunny day today! :)]
