A weekend

Grey friday
The cloud shirt
Snack
Sunday morning
Orange, almond, poppy-seet cake
Spring

blue sky
Spring, finally
Spring, finally

Spring, finally
Sand
My favourite crime show Tatort is watched by many people in bars every Sunday

#1 Friday was pretty grey and rainy
#2 and I wore my shirt which Will calls cloud-shirt because of the collar
#3 I prepared a little snack for friends before we went out having a beautiful dinner and evening
#4 This morning I felt like baking a cake and searched for a nice recipe while having a tea
#5 I made an orange, almond, poppy-seet cake and it is delicious : )
#6-15 A dear friend came over later and we went out for a nice walk .... It is so beautifully green here..I can sometimes not believe that I just need to walk 5 minutes and I am in the middle of trees, flowers and little gardens...

And right now...I am here in the flat enjoying the evening sun which is brightening our flat, flickering on the wall, playing its shadow-game...wonderful

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too...

Looks like a lovely weekend...and I love your "cloud shirt"! It looked so pretty in the photograph and then when I read the nickname for it I though it was just perfect. :)

Thank you so much for your nice comments...
I thought I quickly post the recipe as some of you asked for it. It is the original lemon cake from the rose bakery baking book and I changed it a bit so it became a orange/poppy seat - cake ; )

250 butter
200 sugar
4 eggs
juice of orange
grated zest of two oranges
1/2 teaspoon salt
50g grounded almonds
50g poppy seat
280g plain flour

beat butter and sugar until creamy, add eggs, add juice, zest, almonds poppy seats, and the flour.
pour mixture into tin and bake for 40 minutes 180°
it is a great and really easy recipe : )
