Happy Birthday Alice!
She was quite impressed that I had found some Miffy wrapping paper. Not sure that we wanted to eat any more cake as we had so much at Christmas, so instead I made Macaroons. That were a bit of a faff, as I made 3 colours, but for a first attempt not too bad. They looked like macaroons and tasted like macaroons, but each one was a different size! I must learn to control the piping bag better.
This is my Amaryllis bulb after one week of growing! I was very pleased to be given this for Christmas and hope it continues to grow.
Can it really be 5 weeks since the decorations came down from the loft? We ate our dinner from the Reindeer plates for one last time last night and now everything is packed up and back in the loft..............until next December.....
A quick walk to our lovely allotment this afternoon, it is looking well. All the beds not in use are dug over and manured.
The leeks are beginning to grow, I don't seem to have much luck with them, perhaps this year will be better.
But what has done well is carrots! We have had loads and pulled up these today. Will use them to make some parsnip and carrot soup.
