A Summer Afternoon.

Enjoying a summer afternoon stroll along the Lancaster Canal recently and I noticed there’d been a real change  since last time I took this route to the allotment.  I’d been busy cycling there and back with a basket on my bike, transporting home the adundance of fruit as it ripened each day. Some days it was easier than walking, but I realized how much I’ve missed watching the small changes in the season.

It’s Jam Time at Tythebarn House

A Sunshine Summer at last at Tythebarn House B&B and our allotment raspberries are loving it.   The picking season had only just swung in to action the day I picked these and I had no bag with me.  Having watched Rick Stein’s India the evening before I took a tip from another land and tucked them inside a large cabbage leaf to carry home.

The great thing about this perfect jam fruit is it’s so easy, there’s no peeling or stalk removing once picked.  Just a quick rinse, then on to the scales, layer up with the sugar and leave your glorious pink, pan full of goodness to itself for a few hours.

Slippers, Steps and Silverdale Sunsets….

Lady’s Slipper,  Fairy Steps and Silver Dale are words that conjure up a land of day dreaming and story telling.    Finding your way from Tythebarn House B&B around this patchwork of wonder and wildlife in a far-flung corner of Lancashire  is magical in itself with its mysterious maze of crisscrossing  roads and county boundaries.

The old county name (in parts)  of Westmorland suites our story well.  Only on a family cycling day out did my mind map finally work out the way around Arnside & Silverdale AONB without getting lost!
