Iris, Bluebells with Buttercups and Lemon and Clementine Parfait

20 May

1   Just one iris open – but so beautiful, like a butterfly.


2   Went to Tregajorran for singing this evening and where I parked was this glorious collection of bluebells and buttercups.

3   We had friends round for dinner last night and I made the most delicious pudding! Lemon Curd and Clementine Parfait, an adaptation of a Nigel Slater recipe. To find step-by-step photos and the recipe, visit my page

    For me, irises rank right up there with orchids in their beauty, complexity, and uniqueness.

      I was thinking about you when I posted the recipe, thinking that instead of raspberries (or maybe as well as) a chocolate drizzle over the top would both look and taste good! Lemon and chocolate are very good together. I have made a lemon mousse in a chocolate shell that made me think chocolate would go well with the parfait. 🙂

      Let me know if you give it a try!

      Have a good week, my friend
