Impatiens?

The weekend means mystery flowers from the market! The sign in the bucket said “Lizzies $5 or 3 for $10”, so I bought three for a very plump looking arrangement. I did a bit of a google for Lizzy/ Lizzie flowers but the image search results turned up some flowers that didn’t look like these at all. Apparently Lizzies are part of the Impatiens family, and there are quite a variety of flower heads within the genus so they could well be Lizzies… who knows?! Do you?

Impatiens?

Here’s a closer shot so you can have a look at the buds and flowers.

Kumatoes are my new love

The other week I was introduced to the wonder of kumatoes: small and round tomatos with a brown or striped skin. They taste crisp and sweet, perfect in salads if you want something crunchy and fresh in summer!

Kumatoes are my new love

I love colourful foods, they make life so much nicer.

Blueberry muffins

These muffins look better than they taste unfortunately. I didn’t have any buttermilk and I forgot to whisk the egg. ALWAYS WHISK THE EGG! It makes things much fluffier.

And now… I must do laundry. Fancy’s on weekend :P
