 This was the summer that I had the inclination to pass on a skill I learned from a dear aunt. Our daughter was here on vacation from UK from June 27th till August 9th. To brighten up our days we took time out to go to Whittamore's Farm where we gathered up some scrumptious fruits. Ripe red raspberries were a great hit and yielded her first ever batch of jam.
For my palette I enjoyed the tart red currants and the sweet wild blue berries. Hubby loved the rhubarb in a cake and we are loving the peaches.

P.S. Hubby has made a satisfactory recovery with improvements each day. I thank you all for your kindness during this period of anxiety.

Hi Heidi, YUM---those fruits all look so so so good.... AND--I love the sunflower in your header photo... We saw sunflowers last week at Biltmore... I'll blog about them sometime soon.

Glad your hubby is doing better. How are you feeling these days? You both are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Heidrun, what gorgeous photographs of luscious fruit! Thank you for sharing.

I've been away from posting and from reading and commenting on blogs for several weeks so I've missed keeping up with what is happening with you and Buddy and your husband. I'm glad to learn that he is doing much better. Peace.

You'll have to look at my recent post about making strawberry jam with my daughter! What a neat coincidence! :-) It was her first time ever also. Love the fruit photos, and your header is so gorgeous! I know it was great seeing your daughter again.
