    • SO glad you like it. I do not do it for the feedback, but….it is so nice to earn and read of how much you like the photos. I am not sure what you mean by ‘show’ ? Do you mean exhibit? Or have a show? Karen.

      • I’m sorry…I spend most of my time with family,they know what I’m trying to say without me having to be specific. 🙂 I only meant– do you photograph your gardens & your neighborhood/city/village/town ever? Your photography is amazing & I would love to see England through your eyes…a bit demanding, sorry. I meant it as a compliment. ~amy

  1. Karen! I miss you! I’ve not heard from you in days & days. Are you on vacation or did i offend you with the last conversation? Please forgive me if i did so. We agree on far more things then we don’t. I miss our ‘conversations’. ~amy

  2. Oh thank you so much for missing me! Of course you have not offended me, how could you? That would be like falling out with myself! Lots of things are happening and changing, but I am getting back into a routine again now. I have sent you a little email with news!
    I have been given some flowers which you would LOVE! They are one of your favourites- Ranunculus. Oh Amy, they are soft pink and green and are variegated! I know you would be as happy about them as I am if you could see them. I have taken some photos and will be posting them soon.
    Thank heavens for flowers!
    I will be checking out what you have been up to on your blog. I know it will be exciting!- Karen

  3. You are truly an artist:-) amazing and inspiring:-) I am so glad I found your blog. You can teach me a lot about making some beautiful food from what I grow:-) I look forward to learning some new recipes!

    • Thank you so much Robbie, you are so lovely!
      I think what we all need is more time. By the time I have finished in the garden I sometimes do not have the energy to even pick a lettuce! I am off now to feed my pumpkins!

      • Oh my…only a gardener would understand that comment about being tired:-) I have said to my husband often..’.It is a full-time job growing food’ for if you forget to do something EVEN for one day you may miss the best time to harvest and it is gone till next season….everyone is needed to help:-)…..off to pick berries + collect basil for pesto before the heat of 90’s makes it impossible to work out there….have to work very early to get it done in this heat:-) I have such admiration for those in the past that grew and put up ALL their food!

    • Oh thank you. Yes, the recipe for the cake is so easy! It is from a post which I wrote in 2013. It is time that I created some archives instead of having one long chain of posts.
      The recipe is gorgeous, but it is seasonal and uses pumpkin. Do you use pumpkin at all in your cooking? The tin I cook the cake in is great- it is like a great big pumpkin! x x

      • Hi Karen, yes we do use pumpkin, but not in cakes, mostly in bread or in a fantastic pumpkin soup which I will cook tomorrow. Have a wonderful week-end, regards Mitza
