Take a pile of old quilts and some clothes pegs...

... and this is what you get! Summer den building is in full sway and the willow tree seems to be this years favourite location!
Meanwhile I have spent this week's heat wave in the kitschen kitchen! Playing with dough..
making dozens of biscuits.. Love biscuits and Bug biscuits (of course!)...
Chocolate Brownies, Meme's Fudge Pieces. Some Sweetie Cupcakes...
... and some Spider Buns
... all packed up and ready to go
for the 'Sweets and Treats' fundraiser at Granny's Open Garden Day.

The garden was looking lovely. This little fellow used to sit in Great-Granny's garden - "The kiss of the sun for pardon. The song of the bird's for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden, than anywhere else on earth". The inscription has long since worn away, but I remember it from so many recitals as a child!
The sun was glorious and there were beautiful roses.
More beautiful roses.
Pretty flowers everywhere.
And just for granny, some iced biscuit specials, 'Mill Biscuits'. Can you guess what is in the view from granny's garden?
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I need to go and rediscover the kitschen under the icing dust and sprinkles! t.x

How absolutely wonderful - looks like you had a wonderful day.

Love all your goodies - and what a great veggie garden your neighbour has.

The 'tent' brought back memories of my sons and friends 'camping' in the garden - they made some great dens
