I made these lemon honey puddings recently when we had some guests for lunch. The recipe is from Annabel Langbein and you can find it here on her website. It's really easy to make (I make it in the microwave) and it looks super fancy if you serve it in little teacups! I also had some candied lemon peel and some fresh raspberries from the garden which were just gorgeous with the lemony custard.
My visitors were Keity from La Vie En Rose and her husband Hiro. They were visiting NZ all the way from Japan and made a special visit to see my garden, and I was happy to be able to show them around while the garden is looking its best. I love having visitors especially when they also enjoy gardening - it's nice to show off what you've been working so hard on to someone who understands the work that's been put in! We had a nice lunch before they left to go shopping and then to the Botanic Gardens (and hopefully didn't get caught in the downpour we had later)!
Keity was kind enough to bring me some gifts - among them these cute little house ornaments. I love them, they are like little fairy houses and will look perfect on my windowsill tucked among plants. The little castle design is actually a planter for a tiny plant - if you don't believe me here is a post on Keity's blog about it! It's so cute and I can't wait to try growing something in it. Thank you Keity!
This is my new rose Ash Wednesday, just as lovely in a vase as it is in the garden.
And this is scabiosa. I love this one both as a flower and a seed head.
Have you had any garden visitors lately?
