October, Blackberry and Apple Jam and Living

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

So am I!

I know that they are not a patch on the ones from the local hedgerows but picking has not been possible this year. Today I made a small amount of Blackberry and Apple Jam, much of it in tiny jars, just enough for two of us for a cream tea!

I like the philosophy of this which came my way today. I am not a great one for dusting preferring all the other activities mentioned herein.

Dust if you must

    That’s a lovely poem and could be applied to pretty much any chore. Those blackberries remind me of the summer days of my childhood – we would take a bus to a local common to collect blackberries. Then home to blackberry pie and custard…

      Blackberry and Apple Crumble was our family favourite after going down the lane to collect blackberries – lovely memories. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂
