When I told my eldest niece that I planned to move house her first reaction was "don't forget I'm having grandma's chimney pot". So, after thirty dormant years when I couldn't get it to accept any plants I put in it with any degree of success, the darn pot now realises I might get rid of it and has decided to show me what it can do. I can hear my mother laughing from her grave.

The new Opera House in Frankfurt, looking at them both I prefer the old Opera House. Mind you, this is a terrible photo of the new one.

The last of the lychees. Oh yum, they have been special this year. These are two different species. Now I am looking at the mangoes which do not look promising.


(Have given up trying to get it horizontal . It saved ok in Photobuck . Arghhhh!!)
Aha!! amazing what a reload will do...

I don't think I've ever had a lychee, what are they similar to?

To continue with food, nice big bowl of new potatoes that I dug this morning

in texture a bit like a very soft-fleshed very juicy grape. Taste is unique, just juicy and sweet.
That said I have had enough now and will swap you a bowl for those spuds, or even 3 of those spuds Oh yum.

The only irritating thing about lychees and rambutans (another Asian fruit) is that you've got to get the fruit out of its casing. It's not difficult but it takes a while and by the time you finish you'll probably wish you'd had ice cream for dessert instead. And with ice cream at least you don't have to spit the seed out. laugh

Finally reached the Coromandel Peninsula and getting close to where we stayed for a week or so, this is the first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean after turning off to head up the east coast of the peninsula. That could be Mayor Island in the background but I am not certain.

Spuds were lovely Ren. We had some for lunch just tossed in butter and mint with some cold chicken and salad. Something about stuff you've grown yourself that always tastes better.

Flopsy here is how to open lychees it is so easy if you slightly squeeze until the skin splits then it peels back so easily. Yum.I used to moan till someone taught me that.

You can also open a tin but they aren't hard to peel either. I can't tell the difference from a rambutan, they have spiky shells but seem the same to eat.

I am not a doggy person but can appreciaate his charms.

As for that bucket earlier, can you not Photoshop it out, or similar? If you can't, ask Mr TW, he is a whizz with such things. smile

What am I, chopped liver?

I see no bucket, just a nice blue vase full of lovely Australian flowers - I just know that's how Jill spends her days, making lamingtons and arranging flowers. I even have proof here:

This is an old coaching inn at Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. Yarmouth is one of the places where the
ferries from the mainland load and unload so this in would have been a first port of call for
visitors before cars took over from horses.
