Such a sad thing to find this morning when I went to let the hens out. Not a mark on this bird. I asked my twitter friends for an ID. It’s a sparrowhawk apparently. Looks like it just fell out of the sky.
The Amsterdam Girls have arrived for the summer and I have made a cake to celebrate. Trudi is very happy to see them as they take her to the beach every day… sometimes twice. It’s lovely to have them both here. They are also known as the Fairy Dogmothers.
It’s an orangey/lemony cake. It was not half bad, even if I say so myself. The frosting on top looks lumpy I know. That’s because I have no patience and made the frosting without sifting the icing sugar. Lesson learned.
