When the huge lemon tree at Gran’s place was so full of fruit that the branches were in peril of breaking, the of all our friends and family became suddenly citrus-zingy. Lemon Chicken, Melon and Lemon Jam, Lemonade, Lemon Curd, Lemon Biscuits, Lemon Impossible Pie, Lemon Cheesecake, Marmalade and this gorgeous warm pudding graced tables for miles around.  I love the crusty, spongy top and the goo-ey custard like sauce, perfect for scooping over ice-cream. My Dad added the ginger and cinnamon for an extra layer of comfort. I don’t make it without smiling at the memory of his mischievous grin as he “accidentally” added too much. I hope it brings a smile to your face as well.

New Beginnings

This Golden Elm will be my Summer Palace

This Golden Elm will be my Summer Palace

Someone loved this place once. Happy hours were spent dreaming grand dreams, sketching, endlessly revising plans, drafting and re-drafting. Days passed poring over plant catalogues and descriptions. Garden rooms were carefully laid out and decorated. Vegetative furnishings carefully selected for colour, form and function. Flowers, shrubs and trees were positioned and tended.  This was a magnificent space. Every direction one turned delighted the senses. There is something to capture the eye, or tickle the nose, draw you around the next corner to see what you might discover. So much joy here. With our recent move, and the destruction of my own garden, I can sympathise with the wrenching loss that must have been felt when leaving behind a place to which so much of oneself had been given. It must have been heartbreaking.
