That looks delicious Dove - what is it?   I mean what sort?  (just to pre-empt the obvious answer...)

 

It's this one Steve - made with plums http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2009/sep/26/how-to-bake-stone-fruit-yogurt-cake

OH has just arrived home from work and had a big slice with a dollop of crème fraiche on it - now he's dozing on the sofa until supper time.

Lesley, it's got fruit in so it's one of your five a day, plus it's got yoghurt in it, and you know how theykeep telling us we've got to keep our calcium intake up - that makes this cake virtually a health food

Asian/oriental-spiced brisket chuntering in the slow cooker - it smells wonderful . just some noodles and pak choi to cook later.

I've just been out to replace fleece and bubblewrap and close up the little grow house. 

Now I'm going to sit and knit ... cake is out of the oven and cooling - plenty of slices for later folks ...

Perhaps I should have added the proviso "if we get some sunshine" - at the moment the buds are fat and white, but still pointing upwards.

I agree with Logan. 

Also, keep an eye out for the fruiting bodies which will spread spores over your garden.  Pull them up and bag and bin them as soon as they appear.

I like Gt Dixter at the height of summer when all the 'hot' colours are performing at their best

Topbird ...


 DD - take it easy - don't rush it ((hugs))

Right, that's enough h*wk for today ... a bit of reading/knitting/film watching is due to start soon

There's cake in the oven ... anyone for a slice of Dal Lepard  Plum and Yoghurt cake a bit later?

Who are they???

Think I'd go just for lavender, planted fairly close and trimmed short straight after flowering so it stays compact and tidy.

I'm sure if you ask at your local garden centre they'll either provide a planting service or be able to recommend someone.
