Asparagus Festival, Irises and Blogging

Asparagus Festival, Irises and Blogging

1   It was the Annual Asparagus Festival today in a local hotel so I went along to see the cookery demonstrations and to buy some delicious Cornish asparagus and other delicious Cornish produce.  I bought some fabulous Duck eggs so that’s tomorrow’s supper sorted – steamed asparagus spears with poached duck egg.

3   Valerie wrote about the pleasures of blogging today – a very interesting piece as her posts always are.  I so endorse everything she says about blogging. What a world it has opened up where we can learn so much about the lives of others, their loves, their disasters, their troubles and their joys – and all with such honesty being able, as she says, to open up in this so supportive environment. I do believe real friendships develop on here.
