It was either reupholster the old Edwardian ladies chairs or get something new. For the moment the old chairs are upstairs as I am not really ready to let them go - they are disgustingly shabby and worn but I still love them. I think I will throw a quilt over them and attempt the shabby chic look in the spare bedrooms.
Some other gems that that have been disclosed - old ladies go on garden trips, do stuff for charity and eat stews. Yes, Yes and Yes.
I was fascinated by this Medlar, this is the first one that I have seen, although, I have read about them in old British cookbooks. It was a majestic specimen, fully loaded with fruit. Apparently, the fruit can be made into jam and paste similar to quince paste.
