Thanks to Desertskyquilts pointing me in the right direction I've discovered why I cannot leave comments on some blogs - even ones that I used to comment on. It's good to know the reason why but I cannot remedy it. :(
It's raining here today - we don't need it. Yesterday a black hornet took a dislike to me ...
For some reason Fireweed was plentiful this year and I took advantage of that to make some jelly .... I'd been wanting to try this out for a very long time. It's delicious and the flavour is a cross between chokecherry and crabapple.

You'll find all sorts of information on Fireweed here and here; the jelly recipe is in the first link.
