Welcome to Friday’s blessing list. Time to say thanks for the good things we enjoy.
1. Mysteries –Prince Edward Island’s red soil. I’m glad to live on an Island with red roads, fields and cliffs. It’s unique and very pretty. But we often get the question – what makes the soil red?
or you can go with the more prosaic answer from the PEI Island Information website. 🙂
Why is the soil red? – The Island is formed from sedimentary bed rock of soft, red sandstone which produces the rich, red soil. The redness of the soil is due to the high iron-oxide (rust) content.
When I was a little girl, I thought all soil was red. It was a big surprise when I went “off the Island” for the first time at the age of six and found out differently 🙂
(Thanks to Debbie Z for posing the question.)
2. Autumn Mirrors.
This interview was done in early spring so Polly Hill looks a bit bleak. Here’s an autumn picture.
5. Mmm mm ~ good food! Cooler autumn weather inspires me to bake.
There’s nothing like a warm and cosy autumn dessert – bread pudding and apple crisp are favourites. And let’s not forget caramel sauce – you can use it for an apple dip or if you’re really feeling decadent, pour it over the bread pudding.
Wish I could share some of it with you!
Thanks so much for coming by.
