Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Last year, because of the snow and frost, this barely flowered. As you can see, it's made up for it this time.


  1. Lovely, and I much prefer the white ones like this. Flighty xx

  2. That's lovely. I have an old soulangeana which usually flowers prolifically but hasn;t been as good as usual this year. I suspect there's been too much rain and not enough sun last summer. There's always next year though.
