Three Things Thursday: 28 July 2016

As usual I’m joining with Emily of Nerd in the Brain (and others) for Three Things Thursday’. As she says…

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

First, last week’s unexpected sunflower has been providing even more joy by attracting bees to the limery. I am very careful to ensure that they find their way outdoors again after they have taken their fill.

bumbling around

Second, we finally have a melon developing on one of the vines in the limery… there have been lots of false starts, but this one looks like it’s actually going to turn into an edible fruit. The variety is Green Nutmeg and it came from the Heritage Seed Library.

it’s looking promising

Third, an heirloom. My mum has passed on the family’s ancient brass jam kettle to me. My dear friend Alfred mended my stainless steel pan a couple of months ago, but now I can do twice as much preserving.

just needs a bit of a clean

So that’s it for this week. What are you feeling grateful for?
