|Mini and Merky back out in the garden sniffing around and familiarising themselves - I missed them so much!|
And this aquilegia is lovely - I'm not a huge fan of them in general but this one is so pretty!
|Garlic hanging out to dry|
The mini oranges were on the bitter side so I thought, why not try making marmalade with them? I've never done this before so I was a little bit nervous about how it would turn out. I looked up some recipes and decided on Delia Smith, I mean surely Delia knows preserves, right? It was really easy to follow, except that I did take my eye off it for a while and realised when I went back that all the water had evaporated, oops! Luckily it hadn't burned so I saved it with some more water. I then realised I didn't have enough granulated sugar so ended up using a mixture of granulated, dark brown and icing. Yep, not classic...
Still, a good day all round. Home sweet home, eh?
