Tonight I am off to see a Beach Boys tribute band in a cave. Yes, I did say a cave! I have never been to the venue before, there are a bunch of us going so it should be fun. I'll tell you more about it next week.
In the garden my hydrangeas are looking lovely. As many of you know, I am partial to a bit of folklore, and the hydrangea is not a plant I have investigated before, so I decided to do a little research. Should an unlucky man or woman fall victim to a witch's curse, the hydrangea could be used to break it. On a lighter note, it represents friendship, devotion and understanding. I just think they look pretty, especially with their mass of huge blooms. Late in the season I like to cut and dry the dead heads and use in Christmas decorations.
We are still getting rhubarb from the garden. It has produced lots this year and I have frozen some, made crumbles, and given quite a bit away to friends. I have also made some rhubarb gin which should be ready in a couple of weeks. I looked at it in the cupboard last night and it has gone a lovely pale pink colour.
I hope you've all got some lovely things to celebrate and be thankful for this week. Big or small, it's good to remember them.
Thanks to Lexa and her lovely co-hosts
