My Rose Garlands

Just thought you would like to see my Garland , which made a change from Christmas Lights.
Today it's HAIL STONE AND CHILLY here and it looks as though it's early evening , not afternoon. So today I'm going to make Chicken Tikka for dinner . I always said a curry is indeed a warming dish and a good feel factor.
I also have tried Mango for the first time over the weekend , I tell you I was very pleasantly surprised. So delish, makes a change from the usual peaches , or tangerines that we always buy this time of year.
The Kitchen awaits so I am off to cook my dish, letting it simmer slowly for 40 mins. Then letting it stand off the Hob, come evening a gentle warm through. Tasty , :)
Catch you Later have a great day.

Well I was quite surprised I noticed two little buds on my Geranium yesterday, so I put it in the shed for protection from the Frost. Nature's full of little surprises. We have had quite a lot of rain of late , so happy today it has stopped for the time being.
I hope you are all looking forward to Christmas , I have only managed to put up a small tree with twinkling lights and a Rose Garland. Yesterday I did a little food shop and came across a bottle of Chocolate wine. So I thought I would give it a try , being on special offer over the weekend. It's a Ruby Red Wine blended with chocolate and cherries. Something tasty to hand around friends visits. Shall be cooking mince (sweet) pies, chocolate cake and treacle slice during the next two weeks. I have a few friends to visit so will have some cake over a chat and a cuppa. I don't think you can beat freshly baked home made cakes to bring a smile :)

Well I hope this post finds you all well , Catch you Later and enjoy the changing Seasons. :) hope you all have a great week.
