The warmest weekend of the year and the fruit crops in the garden need harvesting.
I used the strawberries to make strawberry jam and the gooseberries made a huge gooseberry fool. What is your favourite summer fruit? I love them all!
The cherries in our neighbours tree look like beautiful jewels and have already attracted the birds.
This weekend was Weymouth Sea Food Festival. The stalls line both sides of the harbour. The food for sale is always spectacular and colourful. It is provided by local restaurants and West Country producers.
The garlic for sale from Isle of Wight garlic farm included smoked, normal and Elephant Garlic We grow garlic in our garden, but it is not to this standard.
The festival also includes cookery demonstrations and we are lucky to have many well known and good chefs in the area. John Wright (on the left), known for his foraging on River Cottage, demonstrated cooking using sea weed and mushrooms.
The prettiest stall has to go to Nicole Phillips for her sea themed textiles. I loved her sea themed tea towels.
However a walk in the cool of the evening brings its own rewards - such as watching the sun go down over the sea.
I hope you had a good weekend too. Welcome to my new follower Tammy and thank you all for visiting me.
