Well actually I can fully understand this obsession.
I mean who can resist a big juicy plum?
Those of you who have had a look around our website will know from the About Us page that we grow plums, our English plum season is now fast drawing to a close, so, I've posted some of our favourite plum recipes in a Renaissance Newsletter before it's too late.
Lots of events will be going on everywhere including blogland - MYSTERIES IN PARADISE are Celebrating the life and work of Agatha Christie with a blog tour where people undertake to put up a special post on their own site the tour will extend for 11 days. Find out more here.
We own and run www.renaissanceshop.co.uk and we are incredibly lucky because we live in town but also work in an orchard growing apples, pears and plums. We're only a few miles from the sea so we get the very best of British Town, Country & Coastal Living. We have dogs and cats, horses, ferrets, chickens and quail, a tortoise, a parrot and a jackdaw called Sparrow who was rescued from the orchard with a broken wing. We have a lot of fun. We're passionate about the British countryside, wildlife, gardening, antiques, animals, books, art, design,vintage, home, food, living (and trading) in an ethical and environmentally sustainable way. You'll find lots more about us, including links to our other blogs by visiting www.renaissanceshop.co.uk
