Marmalade, Unfurling Fern and a Buzzard

06 Jul

1   To make room in the freezer for the party food, I took out some Seville oranges and some apple puree and , I think, invented a new Apple and Orange Marmalade. It’s delicious!

2   Our Tree Fern is settling in and today I noticed a beautiful new unfurling frond.

3   We’ve been hearing  buzzards calling over the last few days and today saw one in the field behind our house, busy with something.  What a beautiful bird, rather too far away to get a good photo.

    I think that some of your apple and orange
    marmalade would sit very nicely on some of
    my toast in the morning 🙂 🙂

    Have a sweet rest of weekend MBT 🙂

      It’s only small but really quite magnificent ! The trunk is about 18″ tall and it is throwing out fronds about 2′ in length! All this rain has been marvellous for helping it to settle in well! 🙂
