Strawberries and Wine

Going out to supper on Saturday night

strawberries and Wine

I took a posy of honeysuckle, lavender, both purple and white, and Lady’s Mantle, along with a bottle of Pinot Grigio (my favourite), strawberries and a bag of salad from our local Farm Shop

I had written to The Watercress Company (also local) asking about their packaging see below, with their reply

Hi,
I love your products and like to buy local produce when I can.

Please could you find an alternative to plastic for your packaging.
I understand there is a clear film made of a vegetable product that is fully biodegradable.

Many thanks

Good afternoon Sandra,

Many thanks for the great feedback. We have just moved into a fully biogradable bag this week so your timing is spot on!

Where do you normally buy our salads from?

Kind regards,

James

 

I was so delighted that I just had to take this biodegradable bag to my friends so that they could sample the salad.

Now to tackle the strawberry suppliers!

Do you have any flowers from your garden to pop in a vase – if so why not join us at Cathy’s weekly garden party over at Rambling in the Garden, where her Vase is reflecting the heatwave we are currently enjoying in this part of the world.

Yes, I have now been a Granny for 10 years! What an amazingly wonderful 10 years it has been, watching this magical being grow and blossom. The cake was made by her Mum, my daughter, who is a fabulous cook – it was DEEEEEEEEEeeeeeee – lish.

I was asked for some edible flowers so I cut them the night before in case of rain overnight, and plonked them in a vaseDSC_0001

Next morning I cut off the heads of roses, marigolds, lavender and marjoram to take to the cakeedible flowers

So strawberries and cream with fresh rose petals, edible glitter, silver and gold candles, and a garland of lavender to celebrate a a feisty, sporty, sparky, creative and all round delightful 10 year old. I’m so happy to be part of her life and look forward to what happens next!paint

Pop across to Cathy’s to see what real gardeners are putting in their Vases this Monday. A celebration of the camaraderie of gardeners, this week. It is strangely thrilling to see flowers from some seeds I sent to Cathy in her Vase today – the friendly, supportive connections that are built through blogging are so full of joyful surprises. Thank you Cathy for your brilliant meme and bringing us together each week. ❤
