fruitful pickings in Bavaria

Tom and Kim are at Kindergarten today so we thought we’d explore the beautiful woods and lakes of Gerhardshofen again.  Got a pick distracted picking these though

Oh well, you can take the girl out of the garden but you can’t take the garden out of the girl.  And George looked far too comfortable doing this for a shadeless ramble in 28 degrees heat.G in hammock in Germany

There are so many fabulous trees here bursting with fruit: 3 varieties of plum, apples, pears and walnuts in the garden alone. Take a walk along the paths around the lakes and you’ll find more plums and apples (as well as the frogs Kim and I went in search of yesterday) and a fresh water spring tucked away the woods.MOSAIC - fruit trees in Germany

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
