Richmond Walk -Spring

11th March 2014

I am in Richmond to help my sister celebrate her special birthday!

We spent a leisurely morning opening presents and cards, receiving flowers and phone calls!!

We had planned to go up the Shard but it was too cloudy so we took my favourite walk to Richmond and the park was really beautiful....

...magnolia...




...view of the Thames...


....not sure of the name of this tree....


....leaves and blossom so beautiful...


...magical....





...love this curly willow....





....we had a little retail therapy, coffee then headed back to prepare a meal for 12!!

This was my contribution, a 'christmas' cake with home made marzipan and no icing!!


I also have number sparklers to put on!



I used my soldering iron and organza to make the flower decorations, fingers crossed it tastes ok!
