Scrumping!

20121028-201508.jpg
We had a very nice impromptu visit to my Dad’s house on the edge of Bodmin Moor last weekend. He has a lovely rambling house in the country, draped in ivy and heated with a 59 year old Aga.

We were sent out to scrump for pudding from the wizened old apple trees that are dotted around Dad’s well stocked veggie patch. He’s a bit of an old hippie and very much into growing his own, wasting nothing and reusing everything.

These apples made a very yummy crumble! The onions – not so much!

(Biba wears a fab frock from Teresa Green) Here’s to the good life!

A mini forage

Inspired by the lovely ‘the Simple Things’ magazine Biba and I went for a mini forage in the beautiful Morrab Gardens this morning. The gardens are just behind our house and are stuffed with a jungle mish mash of sub tropical and exotic plants, shrubs and trees. You’ll find palms, bamboo, magnolias, a fernery and (rumour has it) stick insects!

There was a man practising juggling clubs on the bandstand today as we set off into the bushes, me photographing and Biba playing house,chatting away to herself and finding bits and bobs for our ‘collection’

A very pleasant hour! (and we only brought a few things home with us!
