It's been a while since I baked so today I made Key Lime Pound cake. We had an abundance of limes in the house and I found the recipe in a new magazine that I had bought last week. It went down a treat with a lovely cup of tea, I wish you could have joined me.
After bakng I went out into the garden for a while and pruned back and fed all the roses, I gave them their first feed of rotten banana peels and Epsom salts. Sounds pretty yummy doesn't it, but it sure does help them grow. I was only out there for just a short while as it was still pretty cold but I did find one lonely acorn just laying there so I brought it in the house! It's quite a large acorn... almost 7 inches long, I bet a little squirrel would like to get his hands on this.
Well I think I am all crocheted out now, believe it or not this big acorn actually started off as a crocheted bowl but somewhere along the way the shape changed and an acorn was born. Quite a lot of things I make are happy mistakes, they usually start of with an great idea and sprout into something else. As long as they turn into good mistakes then I don't mind at all. One of these days I will have to do a post about all the 'what was I thinking ideas' trust me there are lot's of them.
Tomorrow the weather looks like it will be beautiful here so I think another nature walk is in the works... I wonder what or if we will see anything, I'll let you all know when we get back.
