Simple Lunch, Jam and Day Lily

19 Jul

Such a hot day! We aren’t used to it. Simple turkey salad was an  easy to prepare and easy to eat lunch. The lettuce and borage flowers are from our edible garden in the trough.

It was not a sensible day to make jam but the crop (600 grammes) was harvested so needs must, despite the heat …… I haven’t made Blackcurrant jam before and it is delicious.

Our Day Lilies are gorgeous.

    The salad is beautiful, as is the Day Lily. Up in Utah last week, we had dishes decorated with Bachelor Button petals. We’ll have to take you there some day.

    Make hay (or jam) while the sun shines!

      It wasn’t the best day to choose but the blackcurrants had to be used! 🙂
