Whenever I make Lemon Butter I always end up being reminded of my Grandma. She always seemed to have it in her fridge, and I wonder what she would think of my garden? Does anyone else have a food that reminds them of their Grandma or a particular person from their childhood? I think my Grandma's love of gardening rubbed off on me. Even though I was young I somehow absorbed the flower names she told me and found myself just knowing many names of plants, I guess because of her and probably my Dad too. I remember visiting her unit at Marooka and exploring the communal gardens there that all the elderly residents worked on. I remember it being such a place of peace. I vividly remember the smell of geraniums and some other plants which I don't know the names of, but if I smelt them I would know them.
I took this photo a few months ago, just because I thought jars of homemade products look gorgeous. Don't you think? Especially when you've made them yourself!
Another new favourite way to use eggs and lemons - Lemon Delicious -
just as the name suggests - Delicious!
On a separate note, these beautiful flowers have been on my dining table all week. Hippeastrums, I believe they are and they're the best plants. But I can't take any credit for them, they were already here when we bought the place, and I have done nothing to them at all except move a few bulbs around the garden. They never get watered, and most of the time they just look like a few strappy leaves, but they reward neglect by bursting forth with four huge, dramatic flowers in the spring just to let you know they are still there!
