The Three P's (Picnicking, Plum Cake Eating, Picking Fruit and Veg)

Picking the pears from our garden yielded me a small load today. They should be dropping off by the dozens by next week. My husband brought home goodies from his parent's house last night. More green beans, lovely Roma tomatoes (long gone) and some cucumbers. Much, much more to come, I am sure.
I have been picnicking with DN3. It seems the appeal of watching goldfish in the pond, running the dog at top speed and bird watching is lost on 16 year olds and 19 year olds. But the 10 year old loves it and asks everyday, "are we going to the park for a picnic today?"

And I made a plum cake. I always want to show you how brilliant my culinary endeavors turn out but, alas, I am greedy and always dive in before a proper picture can be taken. But can't you see I loved it? I poured some double cream on top of it. Is that bad?


I will be giving you an update shortly on the Ripple Afghan which is coming along nicely, just so terribly wwwwide. Whose idea was it to make one of these in kingsize anyhow?


Oh, and silly me, I forgot to mention in the set design post which movie I was showcasing. It is The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet.

Oh, those colours! The peas, the pears! And the gorgeous flowers - that is my favourite colour.

I think cream on plum cake sounds essential! YUm! Next time I'll have a slice too please! t.x
