ideally i only want roses like this from now on.
i have been keeping this blog for nearly a year. the reason i know this is because all the fruit trees in my garden are galloping along and almost ready. last year when i started this blog i had more fruit than i knew what to do with. i was deep in the throes of a chutney obsession, as in, i literally couldn't stop making the stuff.*
when i was younger i would have recurring notions of journal-keeping but never see it through. my bedroom was full of started and discarded notebooks. this is actually the first time i've stuck at it which is surprising for all of us really.
one of my favourite things with one of the (many) blogs i regularly check into is to look at the very first blog post someone ever did. have you ever done that? it's always kind of tentative and self-conscious post, before they found their groove with it. i love that.
here's a little friday treat for you, it's got buddy holly and skeletons in it.
* i still have so many jars of it hoarded from last year i don't know what i'll plan to do when the harvest comes. i guess i sorely overestimated even how much i like chutney, and i am a fan.
