My Cecil Brunner Rose is in flower, always a delight. It's distinctive fragrance brings back so many childhood memories for me.
It is lovely to see the beautiful Delonix Regia all in flower. Everywhere I go around town I see these magnificent Poinciana trees in full flower. What a delight they are, the lovely umbrella shape and the magnificent flowers in varying shades of red.
I have been working on a good cupcake recipe for when my granddaughter arrives to spend a short Holiday here with Grandma! I came up with a strawberry recipe which utilises the delicious strawberries I have growing in the garden. Everyday for weeks I have been able to pick enough strawberries for my breakfast yogurt, and on some days also for some baking! I am thinking a basic vanilla recipe with a swirl of strawberry syrup stirred through the batter before baking! Will be checking the Cup Cake Blog for inspiration.
On the knitting front I have just completed a small doll for my baby grand daughter to put under the christmas tree! The basic pattern I used came from Jean Greenhowes book 'Traditional Favourites'. One can find all the books at http://www.jeangreenhowe.com/
