Recycling, Cake and Book No 7

I always enjoy going to Porthtowan’s Eco Park both for the Singing for Your Heart and Soul and for the grounds. Today I found another quirky planter made of old tyres.

Beautiful planter

This afternoon, it being stormy and wet again, I decided to bake and made a Hummingbird Cake. I found it in one of my SIL’s cookery books while we were in Atlanta in September. It sounds delicious, contains bananas and pineapple, vanilla and cinnamon so we will see when it is sandwiched and iced with a cream cheese icing.

Just out of the oven

My last choice for the Book Challenge is Lonesome Dove, a 1985  Western by Texan author Larry McMurtry. It was reading this that made me want to visit Montana but we haven’t made it yet.

I loved a Western!

The story focuses on the relationship between several retired Texas Rangers and their adventures driving a cattle herd from Texas to Montana.  The novel explores themes of old age, death, unrequited love and friendship and is unputdownable! I think it has been made into a film but I don’t like to see films of books I have read as they rarely match up to the film I had in my head when I was reading!
