birds and preserves


My sister becky puts things up and she surprised me with a box of her homemade preserves this week. Besides the strawberry and rhubarb orange in the photo there is also a lime raisin chutney that I already put too big a dent in to photograph. They are all unimaginably delicious. Enjoy the holiday, there will be new little birds available shortly after and I’m thinking about maybe bringing back the daily bird for a little while.
