Funny story... now! Yesterday in an attempt to capture some autumn colour I walked to a street not so far from where I live to take a few shots of the maple (?) trees before they lose their leaves altogether. Not content with these shots I started down a steep slope, caught my foot in a root hidden under the leaves and landed at the bottom faster and with way less dignity than I thought possible :) as I limped home, broken glasses but camera and humour intact I knew there was something waiting that would restore my equilibrium!
Earlier in the day I had a wonderful surprise.. arriving still warm from the kitchens of Cocoa Belle Cakes a Frangipane tart, the pastry equal to any that I've tasted on my visits to Paris..I don't feel the picture does it full justice but I think the fact that it's disappearing so speedily probably does :) Any patisserie that has the philosophy 'life is uncertain, eat dessert first' has to be a success, read how Cocoa Belle came about here, thanks Jess and thanks Dave, Courtney and beautiful Pax for such a délicieux surprise! Bon weekend, take care and stay safe...p.s. catch up today!
