Have a Seat and Some Cake

I have been away from the blogging world since March. Wasn't planned, nothing catastrophic, it just happened. Life just kept getting in the way, and every time I thought of blogging, it seemed like work instead of fun. So, I guess I just took a long break! Now that I am on summer vacation, I hope to get back to this again. I have missed reading all your blogs and seeing all the incredibly creative and pretty things you all do.


I made a lemon cake with lemon cream cheese frosting. And you know what? I like it best when it's frozen.


I put a big Martha Todd daylily on the top. It is a bright, lemon yellow. Daylilies are starting to bloom here, but mine had an early drought this spring, and by the time I realized it, and watered them, it was almost too late. They started going downhill before they even set scapes. 


These two daylilies are called Beautiful Edgings. A paler yellow with a little pink around it's ruffly edges. 

This beauty is called Coral Cay. It is more of a coral color, but I couldn't get the light right for it. 


It is good to be back blogging. Have some more cake!


I am joining Fishtail Cottage for the
