My friend took half the cake home and my supper guest had some andI still have some for the visitors on Sunday. Mt youngest son is 42 on the 26th so I have another one to bake on Monday. I cannot believe how warm it is working up the garden. I have finished my coffee so have come in to fill my flask with water as I remember the curator telling me in the Botanic Garden on a very warm day that to make sure of not being dehydrated you should have some water on the hour every hour! Seems to work. I saw some white blossom on the path and was astounded to see my plum tree in the potager in full bloom _the one that gives three types of fruit,namely red, yellow and purple plums. No pollinators out at the moment so looks like there will be few red plums this year. Luckily the yellpow and purple branches blossom later. Good job the neighbours cannot hear me up the garden as this morning it was "Oh you are so beautiful" to the snowdrops time and time again. Lots of different species flowering now.
