Last day of August 2006!

I have been a busy little bee today, Kathryn decided we should go blackberry picking so off we went with bags, camera and lots of humour. So I took some pictures

(Pic above) This is the view from the hill we walked up, my cottage is down there, honest !

(Above) This is the view if you walk east across a very large field and look in the opposite direction to the last pic. The stick on the hill on the horizon is Cherhill monument, which can be seen from the A4!

Look at all these Sloes there are loads this year, so plenty of Sloe Gin MMmmmmm!

The blackberries are rubbish this year so did not get as many as I would have liked.

I am making Blackberry and Sloe Gin Jelly. I haven't got a jelly bag so made my own! I will let you know how it goes.

What a wonderful contraption Libby - I used guaze and a sieve for mine.

It amazing how long it takes to drip through isn't it - it is worth it though.
