This fuchsia shrugged off this morning's heavy rain, and I blipped it when the sun had come out to dry it off. It has been wet for at least a week now, and I haven't had to get the hose out.
I have made some plum jam. We have a small plum tree that hasn't grown very much since the day we bought it, but it usually produces a few nice Victorias. They made 4lbs jam this year, three pots now on the top shelf of the larder, the fourth already started. I enjoy making jam and marmalade but I dont do it very often because it is too easy to eat and too fattening.
