After Saturday's lovely weather, Sunday was beautiful (first thing) and as we have a number of chores we had to do at home, it seemed silly not to head straight into the garden.
Tomato seedlings planted out, lambs lettuce and spinach seeds sown, radish harvested, then it was time to take Miss Moss out for a walk. Eldest and I collected a excited dog and her lead and as an afterthought, I took my coat.
On our way we passed a field full to bursting with buttercup, clover, fluffy dandelion seed-heads, plaintain and meadow grasses. The lane is sunken so the sward is just below eye height - perfect for taking an afternoon photograph.
I love that buttercup flowers have whiskery chins!
And, in the far and hazy distance, Pendle Hill.
As we turned for home, the skies filled with rain, I am so glad I took my coat!
On another note, once we'd walked the Moss-dog
(who went to work with me today to be speyed - poor thing, she feels very sorry for herself),
I came home to decorate a chocolate cake
that Eldest had kindly made for me.
At work we celebrate the 'End of Lambing Time'
with a challenge to create a cake
with a lambing or sheep themed bake-off.
This was my offering :)
By the end of the day, all that was left was a couple of crumbs and the ewe's 'rump'
and it was generally agreed that Eldest's cake was rather scrummy!
Thanks kiddo - we make a great bake-off team!
