After just four days in London we have returned home today and for the first time ever have eaten in the Pullman dining car. We were travelling with my brother and his wife who are visiting from America for a couple of weeks in Cornwall so it was a very special treat for us all. We had just a main course which was delicious.
Although we had only been away a few days, there must have been some strong winds as both a Lupin and a Foxglove had been broken off. I have brought them both in for our indoor enjoyment. The Runner Beans have grown almost to the tops of their canes, there is a mass of salad to eat, there are green Raspberries and a baby Tomato as well as some Sweet Peas in flower. Everything grows so quickly at this time of year!

I’ve never thought of putting foxglove in water. Does it last long?

It is still looking good thought the Lupin has died. There are several more buds to open and some dropped. I have never brought one in before – the wind determined my actions this time. 🙂

I love the way your foxglove is catching the light and showing off those purple spatters. Exquisite!

Thank you. Me too! 🙂

I was dreaming about going to London this afternoon lol. The White fox glove and Lupin are both so beautiful.

I would have to skip the main course ~ none are appealing.
So, I’ll start with the tart and end with the cheese, please!
