I know – I grew up in Cornwall and came home again 10 years ago but today was my first attempt at making Cornish pasties! I was inspired by Ark and followed a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrbY_JBrFE4), having bought all the correct ingredients yesterday. They didn’t look quite right as my pastry was too friable and thin (apparently I should use strong bread flour for the pastry) but my golly, they tasted good! I shall be trying again………
The White Lupins are nearly over and we have twenty two blue Agapanthus flowers on the point of opening to take their place in that bed.
These days of sunshine and golden light day after day, the way the sun moves from coming in at the kitchen window at the back of our house in the morning to streaming the sunset rays through the front into the sitting room and our bedroom – all remind me of this lovely poem by Linda Pastan. I first discovered her work last April.
