Hi Jack

The main difference is the different coloured berries - have a look at this site - it has some good ones http://www.burncoose.co.uk/site/plants.cfm?pl_id=3520

A great wildlife shrub

Looks like pyracantha to me - the berries come straight after the flowers but usually colour up towards the autumn - sometimes the birds get them first - I've seen pigeons taking the unripe berries in midsummer.

Are you sure it wasn't evergreen?

I remember the bread strike - the village shop rationed it and dear Mrs S couldn't believe I didn't want any - she'd not noticed that I never bought any

Our usual family bread was made with two thirds stoneground wholemeal and one third white and I used a little black molasses to help the yeast along - it made lovely bread.

HELLO FORKERS!

When the children were at home I made all our bread - my Gt Grandpa was a village baker  and his daughter, my Grandma taught me to bake - I love yeast cookery and did regular baking sessions two or thr,ee times a week.  I started again when I retired but the pounds piled on so now I only do it for special occasions - I'm planning to make some Stollen for Christmas

PLEASE DONT GO GRANDMA

Hey Good Looking.....

Now we're stuffed to the gills again - this time chicken thighs, chorizo, sweet peppers, garlic and canellini beans in a smokey paprika and tomato sauce mopped up with lots of garlic bread - think there's enough left for half a dozen more bowls full if anyone's interested, otherwise it's going in the freezer

Well, that'd be really good
