It’s a miracle that any of these strawberries reached the bowl, as it was just too tempting to pop them straight into my mouth from the plant. These are the first strawberries of this year, which is just as well, as I picked the last of the asparagus on Saturday and there’s not much else to eat in the garden. But the rhubarb is still going strong and the gooseberries are not far behind- in fact I had a couple of large, but still too sour, gooseberries from the bush this evening.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
