Blackberry tartsWhat is this doing on a garden blog? Okay, well I am showing off. But at least they are blackberries and raspberries from the garden.

And I decided to make a huge batch and freeze most of them so that I’m not caught short when it comes to entertaining. Or just scoffing elegantly for afternoon tea.

Here is a garden picture. Sunflowers. Devilishly hard to get them all to face forwards in the vase. This is my third attempt. They sit proudly on the kitchen bench so they can be admired when cooking.   And other such mundane activities such as watching the World Cup athletics on the box.Sunflowers August
