This and That....................

Beautiful Blue Skies!
Doesn't time go quicker when the sun shines?  Oooh we have been having some GlOrIoUs weather down here in the South for the past few days.  27 degrees yesterday and today looks set to be another scorcher! Hope the sun is warming you, wherever you are!
This post is just full a bit this and that, nothing in particular.  The little sweetpeas have been poorly this week with a cold type bug so we've had lots of sleepless nights, tears and generally feeling sorry for ourselves, but I'm happy to report they both seem heaps better today!

So here is our week in pictures.............

Beautiful Blooms!
I do LoVe Lilacs
Such delicate flowers!
Beautiful Hydrangea
Wisteria ready to bloom!

A spot of baking!

Enjoying some new purchases in the garden!

Hope you all have a lovely end to the week, we are off on a picnic this afternoon to one of my favourite places.................. will share all next time!



  1. Lovely flowers and your cakes are making me feel very hungry! Have a lovely, sunny day, Claire xx

  2. Ooh la la love the look of your cake, scrum! Thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog, it's lovely to "meet" new people via my blog. What perfect day for a picnic, I am convinced our happiness scales soar in such sunny days xox Enjoy! Penelope

  3. Oh wow! What kind of cake is that? Cherry something or other with amazing looking fluffy white stuff and a biscuit base?? I feel drawn to not want to share it with anyone and eat it outside in the sunshine! Can I have some pleeeeaaasssee! ;) Haze x

    1. It's a black cherry cheesecake. It's my mother in laws recipe, that was her mums recipe. It's one of those desserts that always comes out on family occasions. It does taste rather good :) I'll send some over :)

  5. What a lovely post. Love the cheesecake - is it a secret family recipe?
    Hope your poorly babies are feeling better now (and you don't come down the the bug too :( ) xx

  6. I just found your sweet blog . . . and all your "This & That's" are right up my alley. I do hope that your picnic was pleasant, there is nothing about a picnic that I do not like, even the word, "picnic" is one of my favorites. It is just fun to say . . . but more fun to do. I am your newest follower, and I would like to send you a warm invitation to visit and hopefully to follow me, too. Connie :)
