January is traditionally the month for making marmalade with Seville Oranges in season. There are so many different flavours of marmalade around. Multi award winning Artisan Kitchen make their jams and preserves my hand in small batches in a large copper pot in the heart of a small Gloucestershire kitchen. They make a variety of marmalades including Blood Orange, Orange Bergamot and Lime, Lemon and Vanilla Vodka, Pink Grapefruit and Lemon, Summer Citrus and of course Seville Orange. Which is your favourite?
A sunrise from the archives this morning. Last Sunday was so misty that the swans took the chance for a lie in. Occasionally they would lift their heads to have a look around and make sure they wern't missing out on anything then they would tuck them down again. On the morning this was taken the ducks were wide awake to enjoy the colours!
A beautiful glowing sunrise for you this morning in the middle of this holiday week between Christmas and New Year. 2 bedrooms and the living area at Daisy Chain have this amazing view. Enjoy your Sunday!
I'm posting two sunrises this morning – one with movement and one still. It will be interesting to see which is the most popular. Both sunrises were taken last weekend at Daisy Chain. Enjoy your Sunday!
This is another autoawesomed photo from last Sunday. It shows the movement much more obviously because of the reeds swaying. Daisy Chain is an 'upside down' house with some of the bedrooms downstairs so this was taken from the decking outside the master ensuite bedroom. Enjoy your Sunday!
Google has autoawesomed this series of photographs which I took yesterday morning from the balcony at Daisy Chain. I haven't experimented with taking a series of photos like this before. Thanks to +Matthew Lambley for the inspiration. I uploaded a series of 14 resized photos into a folder and google did the rest. If I had realised when I was taking the photos that a bird was taking off I would have taken a longer series of photos! I was too busy watching the sunrise!
I took this photo yesterday evening (if you can call 4 o'clock in the afternoon evening!) Sunset is so early at the moment…only a few more days to go until sunset starts getting later again! It was a beautiful day yesterday with clear blue skies all day. This photo was taken over Spinney Lake, another lake on the Lower Mill Estate where Daisy Chain is. Enjoy your Sunday!
