What a beautiful post......I love jam too and actually raspberry probably is my favourite - I was out for lunch yesterday and had a freshly baked scone with cream and blackcurrant jam.

I am having a cup of Earl Grey tea as I write....my favourite :)

Fruit picking for jam is on our summer to-do list....holidays start tomorrow....hurrah!!

Love your posts :)

Great minds think alike. I have a post ready to go about exactly the same subject; of course your photos are so so much prettier. Your blog cheers me up and inspires me darling. I love coming over. I have to tell you this, I visited an antique store yesterday and the minute I walked in I noticed a blue dish, your color blue I might add. Instantly it reminded me of you and I just had to have it. This weekend I will photograph it and will post it.

Huge Hugs
