I moved into my flat not long ago really.  At first, my attention was consumed by getting everything indoors sorted.  Then, predictably, my attention was drawn outside.

The back garden was being overrun with brambles and bind weed.  The front wasn’t (isn’t) so bad, although the rose bushes were straggly and in need of a darned good pruning.

So, I gave them a ‘haircut’.

 

I suppose it looks a little drastic to me because they were so out of control.  Fortunately, bushes are forgiving and will grow back most of the time.  Next year we’ll see what happens, I guess!

I do enjoy getting into the kitchen and baking.  Sometimes the urge to mix flour, sugar, eggs and my other ingredients together hits at odd times.  Just as it did this past Sunday!

It took me only about 10 minutes to whip up this zucchini bread (courgette cake) batter, and have it in the oven, with the smell permeating through the flat.  

And the ease of doing it made me thankful for the foresight which had me grating up my zucchini and bagging it up in 2 cup measures, before popping them into the freezer.
