Easter Picnic

So nice to have friends who love to be outdoors, enjoying the autumn colours and crisp air before the cold forces us indoors to mulled wine and chai tea or to the edges of fire buckets – which we all love equally as much.

I have foraging friends who enjoy finding food in the most unexpected of places. This time, Chestnuts, which were slim pickings this year due to Summer’s merciless heatwaves.

(I had visions of smoky photos by firelight and many hand busy cooking, but my camera didn’t make it out of my bag that night. Sometimes it is good to just enjoy the moment.)

These times are some of the best of times and I thank God for good friends.
