A woman I used to care for in a nursing home would often say "porridge is knowledge!" (RIP Ludmilla - lovely lady). I myself am so enthused about porridge that I'm posting about it today. I think of it as a sort of all round superfood. It is very cheap, very healthy, and very filling. Not to mention it tastes good. If you're also a porridge enthusiast here is a brief historical account and some Scottish recipes here.
Just don't you dare make it salty like my mother in law used to! YUK!
We are so blessed to have had a lot of rain at this time and the garden really has some marvels to show for it. I don't know that it has ever looked as lush.
The rather unattractive colourbond back fence is now completely dominated with flowering jasmine and dolocus.
And, most exciting, there are more than 3 apricots on the tree this year! Now the challenge is to convince the birds that we actually love them more than they do.
