.....I think the time has come to acknowledge that I'm not actually blogging any more.....


I'm off on Sunday for a Big Adventure Down Under, with Little Gem.


I've popped in to say bye bye.

I shan't be back till the middle of August.
.....I don't know if I'll be returning to blogging.....

.....though having fully intended to come and post a VACANT notice here,
I find myself wanting to start blogging again.....

which is

So: this blog is CLOSED for the time being.

(But it might only be temporary)

is amongst the reasons why the state of Kerala, in India, claims the slogan: "God's own country".

The state is full of spices, everywhere - growing, being sold, being cooked and eaten.

Amongst the spices I saw growing there were chilli

coriander, curry, cardamom,



turmeric, vanilla, rue, allspice, clove,

ginger and pepper

star anise

Spice is a major part of the culture, as well as the economy - whole shops devoted just to spices

and they were a feast for the palate as well as for the eyes

Other posts about spice are over at Theme Thursday
