Oh my mouth is watering now after seeing those Victoria Plums. They are my favourite variety for eating and I buy as many as I can during their short season.When I was a little girl, I used to scrump them from the Vicarage garden where the trees over hung the lane. I think I may have eaten rather too many because I used to erupt in 'heat bumps', itchy lumps in the skin. I'm glad that doesn't happen any more!
Well I suppose there have to be some advantages in getting older!! Scrumping has to be dying art these days though! I think we are lucky to have the memories we have, of childhoods well and fruitfully spent!
