The Cradle, Hydranger Seemanii and Flapjack

02 Jul

1   I love this painting by Berthe Morrisot which I first saw in the Musee d’Orsay, in Paris many years ago. A print now hangs on our landing so that I see it every day. I had to photograph it at an angle to stop the reflection. I hope you can see how lovely it is.

2  The hydranger is just starting to open. It is already beautiful.

3   Made the most delicious sticky flapjack using Dorset Muesli with lots of fruit, bit of an experiment and a bit of a success!

    Ok it is settled if we ever get to England I am looking you up – you create some delicious looking recipes! The painting is also great, I would like to study some art history one day (another addition to my bucket list!) and the flower ~ very elegant. Blessings 😀 Patty

      Thank you! I’d send you some virtual flapjack if I could but it didn’t last long enough! 🙂

    The painting is superb. Excuse my ignorance, but I don’t know the artist. Will have to do a Google.

      Thank you. It was amazing and very wicked though I tell myself that the oats and fruit make it ‘good food’! 🙂
