5 Star Hospitality
Today I had a lovely trip out,
I went to this lovely house in the Welsh country side
A warm welcome awaited me from my hostess.
Over a cup of tea we chatted sat around a beautiful wooden farmhouse table
Made by her very talented husband
Yellow tulips graced the table
Flagstones graced the floor
A visit to the greenhouse
Lots of lovely seedlings popping up with the promise of harvests to come.
My hostess has recently become a chicken keeper
Her husband made a very unique chicken house
The feathered girls looked very relaxed and well cared for.
Back indoors for a tasty lunch
Leek and potato soup with home made bread (gorgeous bread) and salad.
Followed by more tea chat and moist yummy chocolate brownies.
A tour of the cellar
I now have cellar envy
It was soon time to say goodbye
Who is this lovely hostess
Louise and this is her blog http://welshdreamsnowreality.blogspot.co.uk/
Pop over and say hello a warm welcome awaits you.
I didn't take any photos on my visit there was too much to talk about,
I will share a few photos from here.
These seeds germinated got me all excited (I am easily pleased) the seeds are pips from one of my own lemons grown here in Wales. I came across a method of germination I had never tried before, it increases the chances of germination.
place the seeds on a piece of paper towel inside a plastic container, mix quarter a teaspoon of unscented bleach with a pint of water and spray the seeds and kitchen towel with the mixture until it is all damp, fold the paper towel over the seeds pop on the lid and leave some where warm.
mine are sitting on the shelf above the Rayburn.
I first came across the method when researching how to grow my Rainbow Eucalyptus seeds
here is the video I found
That's all for today hope you have all had a good one.
