When we went to bed we knew there would be snow in the morning, but when I went into the kitchen to make my early morning coffee I did not expect this kind of beauty. It was still snowing lightly but the trees and shrubs were heavy with the wet snow.
The light is getting brighter but with fine flakes – and finer rain.
My husband said our neighbor’s hedges are ‘topped with popcorn’
Our neighbor by our side has magnificent trees – with special beauty in the snow.
My cake is the dark cake which (oddly) required dark sugar and dark molasses, and oddly again it also had a half cup of honey. Which was the point. I did obey the recipe, but obviously, not perfectly. It was overdone on the ends, and collapsed in the middle. I was disappointed. Fortunately our neighbor’s cake is beautiful and delicious! We are lucky to have such skilled cooks.
