Baking and gardening

Yesterday, with getting up so early, I spent a few of those early hours baking. I made some cheese scones plus walnut/sultana ones. I had some tinned pineapple left over so made a basic sponge cake mix (the weight of 3 eggs etc.) I stirred in the pineapple chunks and put them into muffin cases.



This morning I have sown some more mange tout peas, plus red and golden beetroot. I've transplanted my first batch of home grown leek seedlings and collected a few peony flowers, lady's mantle and oregano leaves for a new posy. The only problem with bringing my peony flowers indoors is that they always come with a few ants no matter how hard they are shaken. A few more photographs of flowers have also been added to my 'In my garden' page.

  4. Sorry about that, had a glitch. Thanks Dan and Julie, they are nice, might save some of the muffins to have with some custard for a pudding. Congratulations Julie on your award!

  5. Those muffins look delicious! I too love peonies and last week I found the most beautiful smelling one, got Mum to buy one so that I can pinch some cuttings! xxx

    1. When my F in L died and had to move M in L down to us, this was a little plant in her garden which I always loved the scent of. Dug it up and brought it to us. Have now split it over the years and have 5 of them.

  6. Those yellow mufffins look particularly tasty.

    I too, love peonies. The petals get blown off if we have a wind though I've noticed, so they don't seem to last long.

    1. True, also with the amount of rain we have had, many peonies will rot before they open.
