Raided my orchard for some apples (I only have 1 very small apple tree, but I refer to it as the orchard - delusions of grandeur!!)
and produced Apple and Blackberry Crumble. I still use my school recipe for this, but I substitute half of the flour for porridge oats, and I sweeten it with honey instead of sugar. We ate ours with Double Cream! (and she wonders why she can't lose weight!)
Do you remember me telling you that I have "Womble" tendancies? Well this is my latest "find". Camping used to be for families that needed a cheaper holiday, however campsites these days are full of families who look as if they have spent a small fortune on equipment. Often, they buy a barbecue to use for the duration of the holiday, then dump it so they dont have to bother cleaning it or transporting it home. This vision in pink had only been used once before I liberated her from by the huge wheelie bins - much to the disbelief of hubby and the young man who just rolled their eyes at me. If its good enough for Kirsty Allsopp......!!!!!
And finally, I came home from my holiday to find this total and utter beauty had flowered in my absense. She is very tall - almost 7 feet and her flowers remind me of the skirts of CanCan dancers. I am a huge fan of Hollyhocks.
