As the temperature here is now a bit more like Spring is supposed to be, its time to turn to the garden for some inspiration. The bulbs have been so late, that it occurred they might never come – well I was wrong and the colour has returned to the garden. I love the dreamy quality of the garden in the morning with fresh and cool sunlight which picks out morning dew and the fresh colours of spring.
So here is a garden dream formed into a cake – take a walk into the secret world of a sort of neat and tidy garden with some interesting chracters I will describe below….
In my garden there are the characters you will be familiar with from your own garden – however large or small it is – those magical visitors, some of whom you know, some you whom; the only clue to their visit is the feeling they leave behind……
I think these two birds fall into the seen visitors category…. you have to love birds in the garden particularly when it’s time for chicks hatching out!!!
The Sunflower here has got to mark a secret visit from our resident unseen fairy….what else could have made such an inspiring flower….??
There are other visitors to the garden who are dressed as if they have just made it home from an allnight party…introducing our very well dressed bugs….hats off to Mrs Ladybird and Mr Bee – you too are the fashionistas of the garden and usually so chilled out….
If you want to have a closer look at the garden you will find some birds eye views on my Fb page….thanks for your visit to the Cake Stories Garden!!!!!!

Kitty has been trying to decide which hair bow to go for and its been quite a difficult process, different shades have been ordered and sent away – bow’s tends to be the same style but the colours….well you can see the sort of choices a kitten like kitty has to go through every morning before presenting herself to the world….
Kitty Hair Options…
The artists pallet has had to be employed here to let Kitty see the variety of colours available – maybe that was a mistake and presenting red blue and black would have made our lives a little simpler – if less colourful….
