Jack was up with the lark this morning. It's hubby's birthday today "Happy Birthday to you, tra la la la la la" so Jack was in full crafty mode making and sticking before he went to school. Unfortunately the pop up balloon card photo doesn't do it justice. I don't know how he does them but he's really good at pop up cards.
Both boys thought daddy would be off work today but alas not. I made him a marmalade cake yesterday which went horribly wrong. Stupid me decided to pour the marmalade syrup onto the cake before getting it out of the cake tin - you can imagine what happened next...............I turned it over, it got stuck to the plate face down, when I tried to lift it up the cake fell apart. However, it does apparently taste nice.
Moving on..........the boys trundled off to school with their lift share so I took a walk round the garden, camera in tow. Despite the fact it's rained heavily, there was something rather magical about the garden this morning. The cloud was low so was making it hazy, the smell of the rain on the plants and the fragrance from the flowers was heavenly. I wish I could bottle it. It was so still and quiet apart from the birds singing - blissful.........
Anyway enjoy the photo's, I can't name the plants as I either don't know what they're called or I can't spell them, ha ha.
