1   I found some delightful little measuring flasks while shopping yesterday.

2   It was our lovely neighbour’s birthday while we were away and today I baked her a Lime, Yogurt and Rose Petal Cake for the party this evening. Recipe coming soon and it is both easy and dee-licious!

3   The party was at the Allotments and it rained all evening but we had a lovely time. The barbecue was kept dry with big umbrellas and everyone had fun!  The staff at the Lost Gardens of Heligan staff had made Sue  a birthday cake in the shape of the Heligan Giant that she and Pete sculpted.

    I live in the states, and I am dreading the coming winter, but your great attitude despite crummy weather is inspiring!

    Sometimes the rainy parties turn out to be the best ones. I love the garden sculpture cake.
