Dawn, Plantings and Apple Pie

This is a very good time of year for a slug-a-bed like me to see beautiful dawns!

I was so excited yesterday about getting the allotment that I missed the plantings I had done in the morning – lots more bulbs – tulips in the two big tubs that had Sweet peas in over the summer and Winter flowering pansies on top for colour, hopefully, until the Tulips show. The chilli flakes around the plants are supposed to keep rodents away from the bulbs……

I’ve made an apple pie this afternoon, the recipe for which I was given by my sister who lives in America, Hawaii now but New York when we visited many years ago and she made this delicious pie. It is no ordinary apple pie! It contains its own special creamy custard which is added after it comes out of the oven and it is absolutely scrumptious. Thanks again, Deborah.

Dawn Streaks, Bouquet and Fresh Eggs

1   Winter dawns are often so beautiful and at the time of day when I am up in time to see them!

Winter Dawn, Catkins and Cornish Hedge

1    I really enjoy being able to see the dawn at this time of year without having to get up early! I love the dark grey clouds here contrasting with the sky blue and the orange with the horizon still black.

2   We had a delightful walk around Trelissick this morning with L and Grand-Baby B and I was surprised to see Hazel catkins so early.

3  The Cornish hedge had a Spring-like feel to it too with the young green Fern fronds and the Pennyworts in abundance.
