3 little birds

I had freshly picked yellow flowers with my bucket of coffee this mornin,

Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, (this is my message to you-ou-ou:)

Singin: dont worry bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry (dont worry) bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

… thank-you Mr Bob Marley for those beautiful words of comfort.

New Blooms

The bees are having an orgy with all the flowers and pollen

Flat Muffins

Yesterday I did some baking, nothing adventurous just muffins, you can’t go wrong with muffins right? Wrong! Now I know why strawberries aren’t used in baking. I had run out of raspberries and substituted with strawberries which turned to mush, see pic below. They still tasted yummy I’ll post the recipe here later
Raspberry and Apple Muffins

And in an another tragedy, I knocked over my prized Orchid that I’ve been growing and nurturing for the last 6 months!! The first bloom had just opened so I placed it, in pride of place, near the front door walked outside when I came back in, knocked it over and snapped off the stem! Arrrgh
