So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

Garden Time

June 28th

Beginning of June

The weather is so  extreme at the moment, with 38 degress predicted for Sunday. Inbetween times of heat we’ve had rain and more rain.  Setting back the  veggies and then pulling them forward.  One courgette I found was yellow, but more are coming.  One line of peas is flowering.  The strawberries are a disaster, the cold got the flowers and the bees didnt come in the cold.  The Kohl Rabi are getting on slowly.  Paggy was saying despite loads of blooms, he has no cherries, the cold mornings got them along with his plums.  Well at least that lets me off having to make jam this autumn!  Just hope my soft fruits come through for my planned wine making – one consolation, the Elderberries have loads of flowers. 

And now!   Oh the joy of gardening!  One is nearest God in the garden.

Cup Cake by Mariah Jones


 

What a lovely, lovely, funny  tale for all those, like me, who’ve struggled with weight issues!  Darcy is successful with her Cupcake bakery, but she just doesnt see it!   I so identified with Darcy and her problems, and had a real giggle over what happened at the bakery raid. There is so much humour there that could happen to anyone, I loved that, I’m not going to say anymore!

There was just the right amount of dramatic tension, and love.  The only thing I felt was that Thorne was just too gorgeous.  As he was the object of Darcy’s love, ok , he would seem so, beauty is in the eye of the beholder,etc, etc  but maybe if the others didn’t think him so attractive, it would  gel a little better.  After all such knock out blokes would have an array of females, although he has his reasons. Then again, he falls for Darcy, amidst all the stuff at the moment about big women, a real man who can see her heart from the start.  Lurvely!
