A beautiful bounty!

Yet again time has elapsed and my poor blog has been neglected!
Where does the time go?
It goes on growing this beautiful bunch of flowers!

Nature is so wonderful. I can't stop looking at all the shapes, colours, patterns and formations of all these flowers.

I had completely forgotten which Dahlias I had planted so you can imagine my surprise at the pink explosion of this one! Its like a firework!

I have been growing flowers at my allotment ever since we did for our wedding. It brings back such happy memories.

Not only are we getting a bounty of flowers but the first potatoes have been dug and eaten!
Now, courgettes! I love em! I love growing them and we do love eating them but for some reason I decided to grow quite a few! Mmmm, good idea?
Lets just say its amazing what you can come up with when you have a glut!
It sounds weird but it is SCRUMPTIOUS! So much so that we are on our second cake!

As its a time of harvesting look what my lovely neighbour left in a bag for me outside my door!
I sorted it all into lovely bundles ready to hang and dry.

I will be making lots of lovely scented hearts this winter!
Anyway, I will endeavor to write a new post very soon. Lots of very exciting new things are happening at the mo (another reason for the lack of posts), thanks for popping by! x

Your cake looks delicious, and because it's full of veggies you can have an extra slice can't you - of course you can!

Dahlias are some of my favourite flowers. I bought a bunch today but I've never been able to grow them with any success - the slugs or earwigs get them first. The courgette cake looks delicious too - I haven't made one this year yet, but I feel a baking session coming on!

These beautiful flowers brighten a very grey and wet winter's day here.

And guess what cake I am planning to make this afternoon. Chocolate and beetroot cake!! If it's any good I'll be posting about it!

Beautiful flowers - I forgot to plant my dahlia bulbs this spring so it's nice to someone elses! Now then, do you have the recipe for that gorgeous looking cake? I've got 3 (eep!) courgette plants and I'm picking them every day and rapidly running out of ideas!
