Cakes and Cordial

The summer seems to be here to stay, at least for the moment. The Elderflower did their thing this week, way behind those down the country and late for here too. We picked them on Monday and by Friday the mixture was bottled and ready to drink, although it seems to get better if kept for a while.

                             I thought you might like a peek into my box of cake decorations.

I pick up bits and pieces as I see them so sometimes end up with quite a stock of glitter and sprinkles.             BUT.... they are just the thing when it's time for cupcakes.

                   After all the bottling and baking it was definitely time for some hooky in the sun.

It is just too hot for much else although some of the grass did get cut. i have to confess that i gave up before we were finished. There's always tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.


  1. Looks like you've had a lovely weekend.
    Must get myself into Crochet - everybody's doing it.

  2. Mmm I've only just rediscovered it. But I could only do granny squares before following Attic 24
