Red Love - such a delicious apple


I said I would post about the new 'Red Love' apple, exclusive to Suttons. And I did (last night), on my Wild Somerset Child blog. So to avoid duplication, please click on the blog link and go to the end of Saturday's post (Sat 25th Sept). I wish you could taste its juiciness and see the heart in the middle of a cut apple. And the bright red juice made from a quantity of the apples is pure fruity bliss; not too sweet, as many apple juices are. I think I will have to find space in my recently created eco-garden for one of these small trees.

Malvern Autumn Show - on now!


I know I haven't posted anything for a long while, and thankyou to those bloggers who have hung in there, maybe wondering what had happened to 'Grandma'. Quite a lot, actually. But tonight I'm again at Malvern (which sparked this blog in the first place back in the Spring), ready for 'the off' tomorrow of the RHS Malvern Autumn Show: a 'celebration of nature's harvest' and edible gardens in the Good Life Pavilion, and much, much more. Watch out for 'Red Love' tomorrow or Sunday!

The focal garden in the Pavilion is 'Living Landscapes' created by Paul Hervey-Brookes. Atmospheric, amazing, so talented, so 'Malvern'. It's not until you read the catalogue that you realise its significance. Maybe I'll lift the description and add more photos, if the laptop batteries in the motorhome - and the lights! - hold out.
