Scavenger Hunt is organised by Greenthumb (Made with Love blog) and it certainly makes me approach photography in a different way for the monthly challenge. A link is at the bottom of my page - click on the button with the code.
This is my second attempt at the Scavenger Hunt and I'm using photos taken recently. My post is a little early as I shall be taking a blogging break at the end of this month and for most of March.
The list for February was: flowers, love, number, something beautiful, your favourite colour, bird,
on the road, tap, price, heart, a corner of your home, whatever you want.
Spring flowers. The crocuses and snowdrops were seen in a woodland and the primroses were in some city centre planters (mid February).
Several treasured cards are tucked into my wedding album. They were given to me by my DH in the years before we were married when I was just twenty years old and the card below is one of the first, probably on my seventeenth birthday.
A house number (and blue sky)!
The bag DD No. 1 gave me for Christmas, which I shall enjoy using on special occasions. I shared only a small detail on the Scavenger Hunt for February (1).
YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR:
Blue (and a blue sky is a welcome sight to wake up to).
An owl decoration will brighten up those indoor pot plants.
ON THE ROAD:
A tram at Cathedral Stop in Sheffield city centre
A tap for outside use in the garden.
A cookery book, published in 1946/7 cost 5/- (5 shillings in old £.s.d. British currency before decimalisation in February 1971)
12 old pence = 1 shilling or a 'bob' and a 5 shilling coin was called 'a crown'.
I have quite a few chopping boards. I use the heart-shaped one as a cheese board when
we entertain family and friends.
A CORNER OF YOUR HOME:
A corner of the Welsh dresser - the snowdrops are from our garden.

Patsy's Christmas Reflections: Learn to Cook By Pictures. The recipe below is taken from the cookery book above, which was first published in 1946 and again in 1947 and would have been my mother's. My parents and I lived with my maternal grandparents during the years after WWII until I was about eight years old. (I was born in 1945). The grandparents had just sold their bakery business and moved into a large, newly-built house on their retirement and my mother and grandmother shared the kitchen. Rationing of food continued after WWII until 1953/54 and to supplement the restrictions my grandmother kept chickens, but I can remember powdered egg was also used because I spent a lot of time playing in the kitchen and observing my mother and grandmother as they cooked. As you can see from the comic strip the rationing system is reflected in the recipe as the cook had to use ingenuity, alternative ingredients and methods to ensure the family received an adequate diet.
