Summer came for about two hours this morning, but now the cloud is down and it's very gloomy for a June afternoon. But there are some beautiful flowers in my garden. For the first time ever, I have raised an everlasting sweet pea (bottom left, sorry about the wonky montage, it's hard to control these little photos). I bought the sweet pea at the car boot two years ago, it's really taken off and I think it's going to be smothered in flowers very soon.
It's been a strange week so far. I've encountered an internet troll - not on my blog, fortunately, I think I'm safe here with my small and select band of readers. It was through the local magazine that I work for. You just wonder how people get to the point where they harbour so much bitterness. I felt sorry for my troll, he was very angry indeed. I would have recommended yoga, or stopping to smell the flowers, but I don't think it would have gone down well :)
This little piece of loveliness was another of my finds at Newark last week. It's a beautiful crochet blanket in a kind of cobwebby design. It has unusual colours, slightly 'off' but I really love them.
Blankets and cakes, I dunno, it's not really very seasonal.
My family do love these butterfly cakes though (add a little maple syrup to the butter cream mix to make them ultra-yummy).
