Passion Fruit, Roses and A Veggie Supper

20 Nov

On my walk today I noticed some orange colours in the vine growing up one of the houses. As I neared the building,  I realised that it was a Passion flower plant with fruit and a flower still blooming in mid November and at 2C!

At Sue’s this afternoon, catching up, every now and then there was a soft sound as the petals fell from the pink rose. What a beautiful picture all the colours make here.

What gorgeous colours!

Supper tonight was delicious, a new recipe that I came across in my sorting on a supermarket recipe card dated from 2005. As usual, I adapted it a bit!

Rarebit Stuffed Peppers

    I am on the MTR in Hong Kong doing good stuff and feeling nostalgic for home – in an acceptable way though, not a sob your heart out way. It’s exactly the pictures you paint in my mind – the silence of the falling petals, the late late Passion Flower that keep the home fire burning, though I’m here a while as HK as well as U.K. is home. Thank you for your beautiful blog x

      Thank you for these lovely comments. Enjoy your time in Hong Kong. Might you be able to go to Shalowan, Lantau Island to see the Thousand Mile Eye Deity made by Cornish sculptors, Sue Hill and her brother, Pete Hill? 🙂

    We have Passion Fruit ( Granadilla) growing in the garden. We use it in cakes and also mix the pulp with Lemon to make fruit juice.

    I like the look of that rarebit! Idea for lunch tomorrow.

    I can’t believe that passion fruit. That is incredible. I have 2 here in my kitchen I am growing and one is very flower happy. I intend to show it in a post. the other one grows more green leaves but doe snot bloom. Cornwall is milder though, still I would not have thought it survives outside. Probably on a wall with lots of sun…( I might even plant it outside next year, on my back wall, where the sun shines always first and long. ) Such a beauty you saw here!
