I’m not managing to post as much as I would like at present. I’m working in the garden more than writing about it, plus I am still having issues with our internet, often too slow to upload even the smallest image. Hopefully today I will be able to join Gillian and her ‘Looking good’ meme.
I do think it is a great thing to look at what’s good rather than what’s bad or what needs to be done. We, gardeners do have that habit of thinking that it was better last week or will be better next.
There are several things in the garden that are giving me pleasure this week; I have chosen to share with you the Arbutus tree which is covered with flowers and anything that is covered with flowers in November is definitely a candidate to be enthused over.
The bees make a very special honey from Arbutus flowers; it is described as bitter but I would say it has the taste of just a little burnt caramel; it is perfect with Pecorino cheese. It comes mainly from Sardinia and is hard to buy even here which is very close to the port sails to Sardinia every day. If fact knowing how clever the supermarkets are in the UK at sourcing special products it is probably easier to find in the UK than it is here. If you do find any (It’s called Corbezzelo honey, Corbezzelo is the common name of Arbutus tree here) do try it, I think you’ll enjoy it very much.
Thanks to Gillian for hosting and have a lovely gardening weekend.
