Sloe going

The title’s a bit of a misnomer as this time when we went sloe hunting (unlike our last attempt) we found a bountiful supply. Just round the corner from the house – typical! 

I was instrumental in the harvesting – both in the picking…

 And in the collecting and carrying …

 Sadly I wasn’t allowed to take part in the final processing of the sloes as it involved buckets of gin – I’ll just have to wait for 16 years!!


Red carpet treatment

We went hunting for sloes this afternoon, but to no avail. You could say it was pretty slow going! However, I did get to walk the red carpet, so not all was lost.
