In bloom


My hyacinth has come into bloom and it's such a pretty shade of purply blue. I have now moved it to my dressing table to brighten each morning. I don't know how long it will last but I hope it's a while as I'm really quite taken with it!

That plate of sponge fingers you see is a childhood favourite. My brother and I used to have them as a friendly companion to our ice cream and maple syrup. Last night I had some with a cup of tea and they are now a staple in the biscuit tin! Speaking of my brother, it's his birthday today, happy birthday little bro! :-)

  5. Anna, I am horrified with myself. I was certain I was already a follower but apparently I wasn't.. until just now.. Unless I have joined twice.. Good Heavens..!

    Thanks for your comment today. I am sorry I have been a bad blog friend. I am just so busy at the moment. It's both good and bad, but I do wish that I had a little bit more time for my fave bloggies.

    Love the hyacinths look heaven. I can imagine the heavenly scent!

    Sponge fingers.. Aaaah, you lucky thing. I am on a seven week detox and can't touch anything with flour or sugar.. So wish I could.. :/
