The flax (aka linseed) flower follows the sun and then fades.  There'll be new flowers in the morning.  If you can get there  very early when the morning sun is still very low in the sky you'll get some amazing pictures

Hi Rebecca,

i just chop it up into cubes and put in the freezer.  Then when I fancy some I poor some out into a dish, add a spoon or two of sugar and microwave until bubbling.  If summer, add yoghurt.  If winter add custard.  Super speedy yummy desert.  No effort at any time!   Can also use it once cooled a little to turn plain yoghurt a into rubbarb  yoghurt. 

I love it like that for breakfast, sometimes with a sprinkling of granola or muesli too.

This is a real favourite here ,  - I cook several of these each year.  If you eat it standing up it's not fattening!!! 

Other favourites are rhubarb sorbet and rhubarb ice cream, rhubarb and ginger jam and rhubarb chutney.

When we had a small-holding and had a problem with foxes raiding the poultry the RSPCA weren't interested.  

They said the only way they would come out would be if someone shot the vixen while the cubs were still suckling.

 If  that happened the would dig out the cubs who would be reared and then kept for the rest of their lives in a confined area.
