A Frosty Day

I was at Greenbank today and it looked lovely all frosted!

It was a bit chilly to work in but once we got going we soon warmed up.

The pond looked really good with the sun shining through the trees.

It felt a bit like the secret garden today all frosted and nobody around, magical!

Greenbank Gardens

I have started volunteering at Greenbank Gardens, my local National Trust property.

Very Grand!

Its has a pretty house and a very interesting garden with lots of different garden rooms. I am volunteering there so I can build up my practical experience. There is a great garden team who have made me feel very welcome and I have already learned quite a bit from them.

I have always liked a formal garden

Its a very peaceful garden and its nice to just spend some time listening to the birds sing. I think I am going to enjoy volunteering here.

Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

So this week my Mother was having a bit of a family gathering and I still had some apples left over from the load I picked at college. I searched all of my recipe books ( I have far too many!) and could not really find what I wanted. Then I came across these on Paula Dean's website and could not resist.

They were awesome!

But they are definitely a special occasion bake, they are not for everyday. I would be the size of a house if I baked these regularly!
