Creative Friday

Welcome to Creative Friday!
Thank you so much for visiting this space.

Yesterday was a wonderful day, it was Richard’s birthday. We started the day by cooking a huge breakfast and opening presents, after he went off to work Erin and I baked shortbread (his favourite), a chocolate cake and spaghetti bolognese for dinner (recipe to follow soon).
I was also thrilled to discover that some of our Indian Corn was ready to be picked and love the colours! I have left some to dry out for seed for next year’s planting.

Here are some photos of our baking, cooking, veggies, our first apple and our wonderful celebration with the best man I know and love:)

    Apologies- I believe I added my link twice and I don’t know how to remove it. I’m a new blogger and I’m still learning.

    We moved to a place with fruiting apple trees this summer (and a cherry, too). That one looks great. Here’s to many more to come. How exciting!

    That all looks so delicious, what a perfect looking apple. I’ve never seen indian corn before, I wonder would it grow here in the alps?
