Rose Hips, Papaya and Superpowers

13 Sep

1   Coming away from my piano lesson today (where I played that phrase properly and have moved on some more!) , there was a whole hedge of beautiful rose-hips ranging from yellow to orange to pink to deepest red. I really ought to pick some and make rose-hip syrup.

    I have a mass of rosehips too; I picked one of the hundreds on the bushes in the garden of Aberglasney (another ‘lost garden’ when I took some Japanese students to see the restoration work done there. Ten years later, I have many bushes, all descendants of the one, lone hip I could not resist picking and planting.

    I have lots of rose hips too – do you ever make anything with yours?

      I wish they were mine! I’m thinking of asking the hedge owner if I could pick them as I would love to make rose-hip jelly and/or syrup.
      Hope you are feeling stronger these days; think of you often. 🙂
