Garden's a wreck. It's going to take a lot more than 20 minutes of mindless pruning to sort it out.
I may have to call in a Professional.
Baked an almond and cherry tart
And baked an apricot shortcake for my friend C who was flooded.
I got the recipe from a tin of apricot halves and it was excellent. I always trust a recipe on a tin. Because you know it's been tested and it's going to work. Grease and flour a loaf tin and put the oven at 170 fan forced or 190 otherwise. Mix 100g butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 and 1/2 cups of self raising flour, and some vanilla. The batter is pretty stiff but don't panic- it needs to be sufficiently load bearing to handle the apricots. Shove the fruit on top. I added almond flakes. Sprinkle the top with 2 tbsp of sugar.Cook for 30 minutes then take out and cover with alfoil for the last 30 minutes.
I reckon it'd work well with quince, apples, nectarines, or plums and you could use walnuts macadamias or pecans instead of almonds.
and contributed in my own small way to the Flood Recovery by doing C's washing
About 18 months ago I bought these little orange leather shoes on line for my little boy. Must have been the height of my orange obsession.
He's just had his inaugural wearing and he looked adorable in them
Shoving cuttings in everywhere? Me too.
Fingers and toes my cordylines pentas geraniums and gingers strike.
Watched Nigelissima tonight. She's so beautiful to look at. Cannot wait to make that attractive yogurt cake.
Anything nice planned for Friday? I'm meeting the Twins to talk necklaces and then I've got a Birthday Party.
