Garden flowers

Here are some beautiful flower photos from my garden.

Fuchsias in a hanging basket by my front door.

This hebe was attracting lots of bees.

A large flowering hebe.
This plant has been here as long as the house (50+ years).

Hardy geranium.

White lace hydrangea.

I love this rose!

Fantastic peony.

Another hardy geranium.

Fuchsia in a pot.

  4. Hi Ros,
    It's lovely to be back visiting all my friends.
    I love the cheerful photos.
    I don't know if you got a cookie recipe but here's one I made recently.

    Melt 2oz. of butter and cool slightly.
    Sift 5oz flour and half a teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda into a bowl.
    Add 3oz sugar, 1 egg, the cooled butter and vanilla to taste, mix.
    Stir in 10oz of chocolate chips.
    Put spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.
    Cook at 190 degrees centigrade for about 15mins. until golden round the edges.
    Leave to cool for 5mins before transferring them onto a wire rack.
    Sorry if this is too late to use, I didn't notice the date you wanted it for.
    But where did you manage to buy such a large bag of chocolate chips?
    I think your lilac quilt is lovely and how clever of you to make it.
