Midsummer - 17 June 2019

Tonight we'll have a dazzling bright full moon called a Strawberry Moon. It's Midsummer's Day on Friday and the weather is picking up. My sister is coming up for her school reunion so fingers crossed for good weather!
My sister-in-law has now gone back to Canada and wanted to let you know how delicious our organic salmon and new potatoes were. Most of the salmon in British Columbia is Sockeye which is very different from our delicious organic Scottish salmon.

English Willow baskets - 3 June 2019

It's June already - I can't believe it. How nice to have these long light evenings. You're probably not watching much television but there are two Yorkshire based programmes - one is The Yorkshire Steam Railway on Channel 5, all about the NYMR and with lots of filming in Pickering and Grosmont. The second programme is a period drama called Gentleman Jack set in West Yorkshire. My sister in London is enjoying both of them. She's coming to visit soon to celebrate 50 years of leaving Scarborough Girls' High School's upper sixth - how time flies!
