  • It's starting to look like Christmas and finally feel like Summer!   Decorations made by my sister and me. Patterns from mmmcrafts.  I love this corner of my house.
  • My strawberry plants are probably used as ground cover plants more than fruiting plants, cos they don't get much sun, but I found a few wee sweet treats on them.
  • Reading
  • My star jasmine is a mass of flowers, the scent is just divine.
  • Baking - I just about have to fight Miss B off, to get a turn baking these days.  She was out, so I made Black Velvet Zucchini Cake.  Can we say it's sort of healthy with a vegetable and wholemeal flour in it?  I want to make these too, however need to find some rosewater first.
  • A few more ice cream soda blocks, only 24 to go now.
Hoping you have all had a fabulous weekend too.


  1. The decorations are such a lot of fun. Are they in lieu of Xmas decorations? Or will these be on display all year?

  2. Love the decorations on the tree, they look really pretty. The ice cream soda blocks are beautiful. Those to be made biscuits sound amazing and look beautiful.

  3. Hello
    I buy Rosewater at Bin Inn, it's very nice and a fraction of the price you would pay in a Pharmacy. I use it to make my own skin cream. It smells divine.

  4. Beautiful birds!!! It's so funny that you can pick strawberries in Christmas time. We have snow :))

  5. I love your bird tree. I too am picking strawberries.

  6. I would love a star jasmine in my garden. Your bird Christmas tree is refreshingly different. CAKE>>>>>>>>>>you should have said, I would have been there!

  7. Oh my, that cake!
    It is starting to look like Christmas here too. We have the house all decorated. :-)

  8. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.
    Your '12 days of Christmas' ornaments are beautiful.
    And I can just smell the jasmine.

  9. Love those birds! That cake looks amazing (and I'm sure is healthy!). I've just purchased the template set for ice cream sundae - thank you for prompting me!
