Another month, another Scavenger Hunt organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love. With the weather being fine and having two weeks off work, many of my contributions this month are from our travels.
Upside down : Pineapple upside-down cake from my favourite Clandestine Cake Club book. I made it specially for this category!
Clouds : Funnily enough, we've had lots of cloud-free days in April so this photo wasn't as easy to get as you'd expect.
Chair : In the Tudor Great Hall at Rufford Old Hall, Lancashire (post coming soon).
Something sweet : Those cute lambs on our walk at White Coppice.
Growth : Magnolia blossom at the park.
Glass : Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. 16th century stained glass at Speke Hall, Liverpool.
Bedroom : Another photo from Speke Hall.
Rain : One of the few days it rained in April. We'd just got back in the car after collecting wild garlic to make my pesto.
Egg : Large free-range eggs just about to be made into the upside-down cake.
Fresh : Fresh Cafe Deli in Rawtenstall.
Feet : The rather scary carved feet on a table in Speke Hall.
Whatever you want : One morning I was sitting having a cup of tea and heard a noise. At first I thought it was the next door neighbour but then it got louder and I realised a bird had fallen down the chimney and was behind our gas fire! A quick phone call to our gas engineer who said we had two choices: leave it to die (!) or have the fire disconnected so that the bird could be freed. No prizes for guessing which option I chose. The next thing I knew, Chickpea was shouting 'there's a bird in the living room'!! She'd heard fluttering, then saw a beak appear at the top of the fire before it suddenly shot out and flew around. Thankfully the starling must have seen light and managed to wriggle its way out. Our chimney has now had a guard fitted!
