It was a bit of a quiet weekend here, so I thought Id share some random photos. I finished off a poncho for Maia – sewn with a crochet trim – which Ill write up a bit more about and post in a day or two. We went to the park on Saturday and fed the ducks…and the children had an ice cream, as you do mid-winter. This afternoon I picked a huge basket of mandarins from our tree and made lovely fresh mandarin jelly for dessert, this was the first time I have made a real fruit jelly and it was a hit with the whole family. That distinctively tart yet sweet mandarin taste is my favorite right now… ours are of the old school fixed skin variety and have a gazillion pips. If you have any suggestions (recipes?) let me know, we’ve hardly made a dent in them. There is not much color in my garden, but these gorgeous polyanthus which are in pots by the front door are making a lovely show.
How was your weekend?
