A Visitor, Special Garden and Favourite Sweets

27 May

Opening the back door today, we found a very still Common Toad who had been hiding on the doorstep under the sill. The lovely Mr S took him carefully up the garden where we hope he is safe.

Our Boody Garden is looking good! I love the addition of the two pieces of a broken Jane Hamlyn pot that appears to have plants growing out of them. The ferns etc are all rooted in the Cornish wall. For an explanation of Boody Garden, please click on this link.

There are days when only Jelly Babies will do!

    There is a beauty in the ugly toad, he (or she) is a beauty.

      Exactly so! There is beauty to be found in all manner of things that not everyone is aware of. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂

    Brilliant, Bigheart, and Bumper Babies!

    Per Wikipedia:

    The most noted modern manufacturer of Jelly Babies, Bassett’s, now allocate individual name, shape, colour and flavour to different ‘babies’: Brilliant (red – strawberry), Bubbles (yellow – lemon), Baby Bonny (pink – raspberry), Boofuls (green – lime), Bigheart (purple – blackcurrant) and Bumper (orange). The introduction of different shapes and names was an innovation, circa 1989, prior to which all colours of jelly baby were a uniform shape. In 2007, Bassett’s jelly babies changed to include only natural colours and ingredients.

      Thank you for this info! If you look closely, you can see that the black ones have a heart on their tummies. 🙂

      Just the best comfort food available! My arthritis has flared up – hasn’t been so bad for many years – and I just craved some jelly babies! 🙂

        Hope the jelly babies do the trick and make the arthritis more bearable. Best wishes 😊
