Deer in the Garden

This was the view from my kitchen window yesterday. The onset of Winter means the local wildlife come closer to the house in search of food. Can you spot them? It always amazes me just how big their ears are ..... all the better to hear you with ......

PS. If you click on the image it will enlarge it! You can even make out the big wet nose of the deer in the foreground! Blogger won't allow me to post it any bigger.

The Colour of Autumn

What does Autumn mean to you? For me it means the last of the late Autumn raspberries, as tasty as the summer varieties and so very beautiful to look at. The children and I run down to our kitchen garden with basket in hand, our intentions good. We leave empty handed, little mouths and tummies crammed full of the tastiest fruit imaginable. I would love to share a well loved recipe but we never get that far. My advice ..... pick, pop in mouth ....... and savour!
