Jubilee Time

It's getting very busy here at the moment with the Jubilee celebrations being this weekend. I'm helping with the Garden Party at my youngest daughter Lily's school, and trying to get my house all patriotic too. I have been making red white and blue bunting all week and have just hung some of it in the garden.  Just got the front to do now :s

Here is my DD Rowan sitting in the garden waiting for her lunch . It has been so sunny here for the past few weeks. I hope it isn't too dull for the weekend . Fingers crossed. 

I really should have trimmed the loose cotton off  before I took the photo but that has been remedied now. 

This is what my DD was waiting for Salad a glass of Wine and  Strawberry Chocolate Cake, freshly made this morning before work I was quite industrious really. 


  1. First, I LOVE the bunting. It would work here in the US, too. How exciting to have the Jubilee coming up! I may watch part of it on BBC America. (I'm a huge Anglophile, by the way.) The cake and wine look devine, as well. Oh, and the salad... I could use a glass of wine today. I really detest moving.

  2. Great bunting Melanie - I'm sure that England is feeling very festive right now - that cake looks divine...and the wine rather yummy!

  3. Yummy Melanie, I think I will invite myself to your place with cakes like that on the menu. Looking very colourful. Have a great weekend.

  4. What a delicious cake Melanie. Thanks for taking part in my Jar of Love swap, great to have you with us! Your garden looked fabulous and fit for a Queen! I've enjoyed having a nosey around your blog this morning, what lovely creations! Love Katie xx

  5. I love your bunting in the garden! So nice and your flowers are beautiful! BTW...your cake looks so yummy!!!

    Have a wonderful and Blessed day

  6. Your garden looks really great but that CAKE ohhh it looks delicious! Ali x
