The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group have been delivering bags full of blue, green and white pompoms all morning, so that I will have enough to make a woolly garland to hang outside on Sunday. I’m opening my garden to the public then as a fundraiser for the Nystagmus Network, a charity very close to my heart, and the pompoms are all in the charity’s colours.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, LADIES!
I’m hoping that this little chap will keep the pesky slugs away from my delphiniums so that they are still in bloom for my charity Garden Open Day on 24 June.
With thanks, of course, to Jean Greenhowe for the pattern … and inspiration.
In preparation for my Garden Open Day I’m planning which recipes to use for our cake stall. These were suggested by one of my lovely knitting ladies, so we tried them at Knitting Group this week. They were a success.
Elder flower cordial flavoured sponge, combines with lemon curd and elder flower butter cream fillings to create this sweet little fairy cake. Sugar craft and finesse are not my thing – but they really were delicious!
