You know..from the time the crabapples came to bloom..to today..it's really been less than 2 weeks?
It seems like soooo long ago because everything happens at once here now..
I have seen the lilacs come..and almost go..the LOTV almost come and go..
Why so fast? Relax..take your time these blooms of mine..
I am finding that I have a revived thrive:) If that is a word for our gardens..
do I see the end coming sooner than later for me because of our ages?
I don't know.
But I am primping more..than the last 6 yrs.
I have always loved making small bouquets..this yr is no exception..~
With each early bouquet..even if I do not remember my mom as a gardener..it's her everywhere I look♥
Have I told you that I love my chickens?
My 2 girls?
Bécassine and Caramelle?
They follow me in the gardens and I LOVE that..
I pick them up..they hunker down as Alain said so well..and I bring them back in their pretty coop..
And one day I just CALLED them in..
Oh lala..they meandered into a bed and DUG..I do like that action of theirs..but not when they dig up..my DAHLIA tubers..oh no girls..!!
They got picked up and brought in for time outs LOL:)
I have an easy cake recipe for you at the end..that uses the same weight in EGGS..don't tell the girls ;)as the other ings..
good! and plain and simple and fun to dress up w/ home made rhubarb jam etc..
OK..now..do you see the yarn? And the hooks?
Susan and Linda.. and Diane at the beach..and Mary Pat at the beach..they make these FANTASTIC dishcloths..
I have to..
So you see the stuff?
Now what lol..
And the shoes..
my fake Toms..
I went to Michaels twice this week..
NOT a good idea;)
On one visit..I spotted $7.00 white canvas shoes..and I had a coupon..
I cannot leave anything alone;)
Now for some reason I want more blank shoes.:)
And for the recipe..of the cake..:)
It is so easy..all ings are weighed..according to the weight of the eggs!
Weigh the eggs..4
add the same amount of sugar and butter that has been melted and cooled..and flour and the sachet of 11 g of LEVURE CHIMIQUE..which he says is facultatif..optional.
I had such envelopes..from here..
it means baking powder..and I wonder..
anyway it worked here..
So what do my expert bakers think?
OMG Max turns ten in the next imminent time..
How on earth did that happen?
Have a great weekend..
Rain in the forecast here..
P.S. Did you watch the Finale of CTM?
My next shoes will be macarons;)
