If idle hands are the devils tools we are OK then here in the Nesbitt household!

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

Walking up the lane last Thursday I noticed the duck pond was quite quiet as for some reason the ducks had chosen the second pond as their favourite of the day. It was during my walk with Freida I noticed the amount of elderberries, brambles and rosehips which were ready for picking. Our own plums are now picked and freezing ready to be made up into Christmas drinks. This week is going to be a week of picking & pottering in the kitchen as well as continuing with preparations for my exhibition……busy busy I think!

  3. I've got some chutney on the go at the moment that's got hedgerow damsons in it. And there's bramble and apple pie for tea!

  4. All that hedgerow foraging! I've been picking brambles from my own jungle before we try and cut it back. I just stand and eat then straight from the bushes LOL
