On this visit to serenity the daisies are in full flower, and the sunrises are just as lovely.  Unfortunately a lot of the garden is showing signs of neglect which is sad.  The pink rose has gone to heaven, 
It used to look like this...the pink one at the back

now it looks like this...
I made some progress with the garden, but even more progress in the kitchen.

There were sausage rolls, and there was soup.....
Not much room for anything else.

Last but not least, when I was a young girl my grandmother sang this song to me and I never forgot it.  A few years ago I was fortunate to find the sheet music for it......
Then while at the Gold Coast DIL actually found the song recorded from many years ago on u-tube.. This style of music may be well before the time of many readers, but it puts a spring in ones step just the same.

Just google

  1. Your garden looks lovely.

    Your freezer full of baked goods is amazing! You make me want to do that. WOW!

    That is a happy tune from years gone by. Way before my time, but I can just picture your grandmother singing this to you.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  4. that is the most glorious sky Shirley and all that baking, moutwatering

  5. That white daisy with a blue middle is gorgeous, Shirley! I must see if I can grow it over here!!!!! What a gorgeous place! Serenity is right!!!!! I will have to listen to the song when morning comes! I am awake at 1:30am with a cold. Yuck. Glad you found a song dear to your heart!

  6. The sunrise is wonderful. The garden looks good, even if you lost a rose...plant another to enjoy.
    The bake-off and freezing is fabulous. Way to go.
