Unfortunately natures bounty was not safely gathered in before work was abandoned, rain, rain and more rain has stopped play and the back field lays dormant.
The positive out of this is that I have stopped sneezing.
No getting out and about today, or getting out to do some work in the garden. The forecast has predicted much of the same for the rest of the day. I am keeping my eye on it though and keep nipping out in between bursts to harvest some of the herbs for the freezer. I have run out of ice cube trays so I am snipping some into an empty plastic egg box to freeze. They will be perfect for adding to stews/soups/casseroles in the coming months.
I intend to harvest some mint and lavender and hang in the kitchen to dry. Last years harvest of lavender is ready to be put to good use. The perfect day to start on some of the lavender projects.
I wish you were able to smell this stunning bounty, perfect for aiding sleep and keeping moths away from stored clothing/bedding. Nice to make some little gifts for friends and families, filled with love and something grown from the garden.
I love just been able to walk into my craft room and have all the materials to hand, it is so satisfying finding the exact things needed. Thank goodness for stashes.
I have made a start, I could be sometime...
Hope your day is not as wet as mine.
See you soon.
