This weekend is Heritage Weekend across the country with lots of interesting buildings open to the public. I spotted this lovely old bus in Northampton town centre this morning , it was doing 'heritage tours ' of the town. It was parked in front of our beautiful Guildhall. I regularly walk past it without giving it much of a thought but today it looked splendid in the September sunshine.
There was also an antiques market held in or historic market square, it was lovely to see the market bustling with people in the sunshine. We used to have regular antiques markets but they stopped some years ago so this was quite a treat. I managed to find a blackbird pie funnel. I have wanted one of these for years and he has already been given a home amongst my other treasures on my kitchen dresser shelves.This afternoon I have picked more tomatoes from the garden. We seem to have a never ending supply at the moment and a range of varieties including some of the unusual stripy ones. I always use some to make batches of tomato puree and tomato soup to freeze.
