Umbrella, Butterfly and Golden Curd

04 Jul

1   What a lovely sing this morning and with the added delight of the choir-babies who always make us smile.

2   There were spare fresh eggs this morning so I bought them and therefore had enough to make Lemon Curd this afternoon. I have never seen such beautifully golden Lemon Curd and all because of the fabulous golden yolked eggs.

3   The lovely Mr S called me into the garden to see a beautiful visitor this afternoon – a Red Admiral Butterfly, looking a bit rough around the edges but lovely to watch fluttering around the garden.

    The umbrella dancer has me too…but, some of the lemon curd over warm gingerbread would be so tasty!

    Seriously cute umbrella dancer! That lemon curd looks so wonderful, it’s made me fancy some on toast! A great capture of a beautiful butterfly… three very beautiful things! 🙂
