Orange Pastry, Nasturtium and Raindrop

13 Dec

Well, that’s four dozen mini mince pies and a dozen big ones made today. They all have orange pastry like my Mum used to make. It adds a certain something not quite discernible to the pies which makes them even more delicious than usual. I so love spending a whole day baking! See my previous post for a photo of some of the mince pies.

One beautiful Nasturtium is flowering in my Monkey Planter.

These three leaves seemed to have positioned themselves for me! I like the way they have fallen, their colours and the way the raindrops magnify the veins in such a magical manner. Click on the photo to see the magnification of the veins.

    Baking connects me to my mom and grandmother, it is such a wonderful bit of time.

      That is lovely. Cooking connects me to my Mum and now to my Grandchildren. When they visit I make sure that we do some baking together. 🙂
