Ordinary Things.........

Ordinary things..........like cleaning out the poly-tunnel greenhouse ready for some winter plantings and finding jalapenos, which I pickled:


.........and some bushes of ripe chilies, which I threaded onto string to dry.



.......and being given some freshly-picked olives to pickle:


Ordinary things like a trick of the light which limns an ordinary object into a thing of beauty:


Ordinary things are a balm to a wounded soul.

Good for you Susie. Craig was wondering if you had saved any seed from the jalapeno, would love to swap you something. Haven't the days been lovely and mild for the garden?

In the garden I feel peace I hope you do as well.

I've saved some, Tanya......hope they are "viable"!
Yes, Kay - the garden is the best place!

Hi Susie x

I love olives. They remind me of warm balmy days in Thassos, olive groves, the Mediterranean blue sea, cats (which I adore, even feral ones - poor little creatures struggling with litter after litter) and most of all, our dear Lord Jesus who went up to the Mount of Olives to spend time with His Heavenly Father.
What's not to like.

Love Karin
