We have this thing in our family of packaging up food parcels in silver alfoil after big family events for everyone to take home. My grandmother's soirees always end with a divvy up of the amazing left overs which she has often spent days preparing. This similarly happens at my mother's house too. But it really hasn't been a thing which happens at my house as I don't love to cook. It's just not my thing. I mean I can cook but I really don't get the enjoyment out of it like my mother and my grandmothers do.
I think I am starting to become known in our family for a different type of silver alfoil package....
Whenever anyone has visited our house lately they have left with a big bundle of fresh flowers from our garden which are wrapped at the base with wet tissues and silver alfoil for the trip home. Here's the little bundle of fresh lavender, calendulars, basil, bougainvillea etc. I collected out of our garden today for a special family member. I hope she gets lots of enjoyment out of them this week.
I am yet to tell the family that our huge trellis of sweet peas will be in flower next week...I'm sure they'll all be dropping in for a visit once they know this!!
