There were other things to look at too ... and while most of the dramatic colours are now just in photographic memory ... there are a few of the more delicate flowering shrubs attracting the bees. The blossom may be small but it is very pretty.
Tonight was "leftovers"!
Soup ... lentil and carrot from last night followed by a curry ... it's amazing what a tin of coconut milk, a good curry mix, Tabasco and Wasabi sauces and a few fresh vegetables can do to the mixtures of beans, roasted vegetables and tomato sauce (not ketchup). It may not look a thing of beauty ... maybe you can identify some of the contents .... but the taste was great! The leftover fruit salad was given a new lease of life with blueberries and strawberries ... now plentiful, local and cheap ... so we had a grand dinner.
It's interesting what you can do with fairly simple ingredients ...
If folk happen to be in Bangor (County Down) in the morning there'll be an abseil down the clock tower to raise funds for the new parish centre there. This should be fun to watch and I'm thinking that Eliot will probably come along for the ride as well! Then it will be back to look in on the A&C Fair before making sure that all is in order for Sunday's service when Bishop Alan will be with us.
This week has flown past and I think the next one may go even more quickly!
Temperatures are set to drop again from tomorrow and the five day forecast suggests that rain is on the way again. At least it keeps the grass green ... and talking of that ... where is my gardener?!
We turn to Christ anew
who hear his call today,
his way to walk, his will pursue,
his word obey.
To serve him as our king
and of his kingdom learn,
from sin and every evil thing
to him we turn.
