Not only have I been hampered by the weather I have been side-lined by back injury. As it turns out, not as dramatic as first thought, but it’s certainly slowed my progress.
So I’m a tad late with posting these pictures. What are you going to do? Sue me? Don’t bother – I’ve spent all my money!* hahaha!
Pi has been in the news lately. That film “Life of Pi” scooped some well-earned plaudits in Hollywood. And Pi is also a mathematical constant.
A few years ago someone decreed March 14th International Pi Day and mathematicians, cooks, book artists and well, anyone, really, celebrate the day. I always say I’ll make a pie for Pi. And I always forget!
But not this year! To celebrate the day and to perpetuate a silly running joke Chez Dinahmow, I made this…
A square pie, with the TT symbol on the lid.Filled with apple and apricot and very tasty, according to The Man. And the joke? Little boy comes home from school and says his teacher don’ know nuffink. “She told us pie are square an’ we all know CAKE are square an’ PIE are round!”
Moving on…I think I’ll just make it for Jane’s Monday Flowers In The House.
The beautiful old rose, “Apricot Nectar.” Plagued by grasshoppers and, recently, battered by storms, I was delighted to see one new bud swelling. And then the birds zoomed in, chasing bugs and snapped the stem. I waded in with secateurs and performed a mid-season pruning.The wind eased, the rain worked its wonders and the rose put out three more buds. The grasshoppers, meanwhile, had had their own reproduction orgy. So I picked the remaining bud and here it is. Want to see what else people have in their vases? Pop over to Jane’s blog
Those of you with sharp eyes and good memories will see that the vase is on top of my mini-piano. Only for the photo shoot!
Good grief! I didn’t realise the time had flown. It’s Wine O’Clock. Time for fizzyotherapy. Salut!
