The photo above is of a yew tree which I have been 'bonsai-ing' for the last ten (?) years. In the soil around it are some very tiny pink flowered plants, which I think Ann took from a sink garden/rockery we once had. They are nicely in proportion to the tree, but I've no idea what they are - alpines of some sort, I should think. Does anyone know?
This afternoon, having an hour to spare, we strained and bottled the sloe gin from the sloes picked last year. As you can see, we've made seventeen half bottles this year. Got three half bottles left from the year previous, so will probably open the first of this lot sometime around Christmas, when it should be drinkable.
Got a very early start ack Emma, so - Good Night.
