Storms Arwen and Barra and a partridge in a pear tree: December 5 2021


This was taken about a week ago - on the Sunday that Storm Arwen hit the Isles - about 6pm. Many people were left without power for the best part of a week in northern England and parts of Scotland. Start to wonder whether it might be wise to invest in a generator (although I would find the noise wearisome). Storm Barra is due tomorrow, heading in from the Atlantic with wind, rain and snow forecast. Are we ready, Britain, for these changes to our climate?

Had my first meal from the game hamper, a tiny partridge, roasted with a delicious gravy, potatoes and Pak choi. Not sure I did it justice, legs were tough and only ate half - wasn't up to doing battle with the other half! Nice flavour though. The remains and the gravy might end up in a pie or casserole, with mashed potatoes and dark greens. Next time, I will try it in the slow cooker, more mellow for a delicate bird.

Had a look at columnar pear trees for the garden: fancy pear, apricot, Bramley apple, cherry and maybe some nut trees. Have to see how much room they need.
