sadly no cupcakes...

I had planned on making cupcakes this weekend after being smitten looking at all the gorgeous cupcake photos there are, floating around the net, but what can I say? It just didn't happen! Instead there was bread...

bread

Pumpkin and sunflower to be precise, and no sooner was it made than it became part of a scratch lunch with cheese and olives and tomatoes, (there was also avocado but it turned out not to be ripe enough - grrr - I hate that when it happens!)

There was also gardening, well weeding really, as the garden has started to have a mind of it's own with all the damp and warm weather. The garden also gave me the first swet peas of the summer. I wish you could smell how fragrant they are.

As you can see my approach to flower arranging is a little informal, with a few heads of grasses and even a seed head from my parsley plants to add a little something. I love, love, adding random bits of the garden to my flowers and making something unexpected pretty.
(Also I think it's nice for the rest of my garden to have a chance to take centre stage and not just the flowers lol!)

Hope your weekend was lovely whatever you got up to!

I had a great weekend. Now Summer is officially here, though we are swimming in rain here.
Your bread looks so good. I look forward to see the cupcake when you make it.

Yum! I so wish I were there to enjoy it. That would mean, I was far away on vacation. lol

Jac, these photos are so beautiful! Sigh.

That bread looks amazingly tasty. (It makes me happy that it's time for breakfast.)
Where did you get the recipe? It sounds delicious.

I just took all the flower heads off my parsley - why didn't I think to put them in a vase?

Love your garden bouquet.
