the sun's beginning to disappear behind a dark cloud.....
A spot of tea and lemon loaf while I do some planting.......
This loaf tastes even better with a lashing of butter... (not good for my hips!!)
And these happy faces all on the same bush.....a new type perennial petunia...
And my favourite...Margaret Roberts Lavendar.... all makes for a good place to hang one's gloves up!!
The recipe courtesy...Ronelle .
juice of 2 lemons and I added the juice and zest of an orange
15ml baking powder
pinch of salt

Add the eggs, one by one, beating well after each addition.
