or jam pans, anyway! I have had a glorious day making jams for our local gardens gift shop and tea room - Barnsdale Gardens - the one that used to be on Gardener's World with Geoff Hamilton. His son Nick runs it now and it is a most beautiful place to visit. Exquisite gardens within a garden, many of them still recognisable from Geoff's era. I hear their cream teas - and especially the jams - are delicious as well! I'll be doing some special events there in the Summer, making jams in a marquee in the gardens which will be great fun.They have a lovely gardeners' gift shop ( where you can buy pots of delicious jam!) and a nursery full of plants to buy and take home. It's all on the level as well, which makes it ideal to take a leisurely stroll, pausing on one of the well-placed benches to take in the sights and smells.It is a photographer's - and jam lover's - paradise. Then, as you are in the area, you could come and see me!

Ha Ha! I had a picture of me drawn by the very talented Marek Jagucki - soooooo talented to have drawn my waist that small! I wish. Anyway, the pearls are accurate! The point being, that wherever you see Rosie on lovejars.co.uk I will either being giving you some advice, information - or news of a bargain! So look out for me wherever I pop up - I might just be giving away a prize!
