Not a Basket of Flowers today but –
Sculptures of Dried Palm Ends.
Well we can’t be serious all the time can we?
I thought these would look great and make a change to look at in my garden that needs a lot of care at the moment. So I think they look quite good and should last for sometime. Obiously they are not likely to grow – will just stand there looking strange and interesting. Would be quite a talking point I thought until one of my friends doubled up with laughter wondering what they were. Get rid of them another said ‘throw them in the bin’ but no, they can stay for a while.
Just think before you throw out the old Palm Fronds or Stems what you can use them for, in the house as a flower arrangement or in the garden as I have done here. The thing is that family don’t always understand our thinking but as long as we are happy with the result – well there you are then.
How about a Recipe: ?????
Dried Fig Jam
2lb. Dried Figs. 3lb. – Granulated Sugar, Strained Juice of 2-Lemons, One and half pints Water.
Soak the Figs in a bowl of water for 12hours, rinse in Fresh Water, cut into small pieces, removing any hard little pieces of stem. Put into a preserving pan with a pint and a half of Hot Water and simmer until tender. Stir in the Lemon Juice and Sugar and continue to cook until the Preserve is thick.
Pot while hot & cover.

James: Chapter 3 verse 18.
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
Just think how good it would be to be a peacemaker, someone who tries to keep the peace and not cause strife to anyone. Well we can but try can’t we?
I hope you have a lovely Day today,
sow something nice into your Garden
into a Flower Pot.
