Now that spring has finally sprung, my head is filled with flowers. As soon as the sun comes through and the soil warms up a little, I will start sowing. Packages of sweet peas, Forget-me-nots, Cosmos, Zinnia and mixed cutting flowers are waiting in a little basket in the garden house.
When at home, I am either crocheting or baking :-) Last week I made an orange chocolate fudge cake, which was delicious. The combination between the orange and chocolate, divine.
I was inspired by the Great British Bake Off, which I enjoy watching now and then. The cake is probably a calorie bomb, but when at work in the garden, I don't mind. I can use the energy and the calories will probably be burned by the time I go home. We had visitors too, so not much of the cake was left on Sunday night. If you are interested in the recipe, you can find it on the BBC's website.
I crocheted two strings of flowers this week. The daisy chain is my favourite. There's something about daisies that makes me smile. It's probably their friendly appearance. My garden is full of little daisy plants which I seeded last year. I hope that in a few weeks time, my garden path will be lined with them.
While I am typing this, the grey clouds move over, to make room for blue skies and sunlight.
Wishing you a bright and sunny weekend!
