National Trust properties are well known for their fun children’s trails – but we think we’ve got the best one yet. Amanda, the gardener, has just been round the house hiding 16 crocheted apple cosies for our younger visitors to find!
If you haven’t heard of these – and I’d be surprised if you had – they are like tiny tea cosies but specially designed for apples. If you’re now wondering whether you too should be keeping your crop warm this way, I ought to add that you can’t buy them in the shops, because they’re just for fun.
Ours were crocheted by the lady who turned out to be behind the (initially) mysterious yarn bombing that we suffered a few weeks ago and they are certain to bring a smile to the face of anyone who sees them.
