shoots, cakes and sadness

My greenhouse is quietly coming to life. Seeds I sowed just days ago have germinated already in its gentle, humid warmth. I can almost smell things growing.

My new cake recipe book arrived and I can't wait to get going....

Elspeth Thompson, who's book, the Wonderful Weekend Book inspired me to write this blog has died. She took her own life at only 48 and I felt so saddened and shocked when I read about it today. I wish wish wish she had asked for help. She had too much life and love in her to have died so young and my heart breaks for her family. What a deep hole she must have left in their midst.
