That hanging basket has long gone now but I think it is lovely to take a photo sometimes of our different pot plants and flowers before they are gone.
Also it is good to keep a file on the computer to put our flower photos in. If you have never thought about that I think it is a good thing to do, to remember some of the beautiful flowers that we can grow in Hanging Baskets or photos of our Pot Plants.
For our Recipe today: Here is a copy of a Postcard I did with the Recipe on it for a Fruit Salad:
Something different using our beautiful fruit here in Carnarvon where we live.
Here is the Link for my Cookery Book for Carnarvon Recipes:
I thought this photo would look nice instead of putting a photo of a Basket of Flowers on here today, the photo has come out very well as I am not the worlds best at taking photo’s but every now and then we seem to get a good one.
So I would encourage you today to take several photo’s of any special flowers that you have growing in your garden or maybe when you go for a walk….just a close-up sometimes can be very rewarding. Then if you save to your computer can be used to bless friends or others by printing out onto a card for them. If you take several the delete button is very helpful to take off the ones that are not so good. !!! Yes I have to delete quite a few.!!!
The above basket of flowers was made to take to Church – the flowers are anchored down in Wet Oasis.
An Easy Recipe for today:
* BANANA CAKE *
Use your favourite plain recipe: Add:
2 – Ripe Bananas (mashed)
Cook in the usual way
Decorate and Eat.
(Lemon Flavour Butter Icing is nice to use for Banana Cake)
The Poinciana Tree is overhanging from my neighbour’s garden and has given us all this lovely shade and red blossoms on the pavers. Lots of seed pods still hanging from last Season. It is a beautiful spot to walk under and helps keep us cool from the 30 to 40 deg. heat. at this time of the year here in Carnarvon, Western Australia.
If picked to put in a vase, these flowers do not last very long, maybe a day or two but look very pretty if put in with some greenery.
As it is our Summer here I thought you may like a Smoothie Recipe today or – maybe you call them a Milk Shake.
Banana Milk Shake…..Smoothie.
2 – Carnarvon Ripe Bananas: 1 tsp – Sugar or Honey; One and a half glasses – Cold Milk.
Put all in Blender – Blend approx. 30 Seconds pour into Glasses.
Alternative: Add two scoops Vanilla Ice-cream to Blender with the above recipe:
Or: add one Scoop to individual Glasses before serving, pour Milk Shake on top of Ice-cream.
Healthy Breakfast Special. ….. without Ice-Cream.
Ingredients as above but add (per person)5-Almonds; 2-Brazil nuts; 1tsp.Psyllium Husk (if liked); 1-dried Apricot or Prune or Date; 1tsp-Honey. 1tsp – Ground ASL= (Almond,Sunflower,Linseed).

Passionfruit can be eaten straight off the vine and can be used in many different ways.
It is lovely to cut through the middle and eat the contents with a spoon.
Also can scoop out the pulp and put over Ice-cream (best use Vanilla) to get the lovely taste of the Passionfruit.
What about using a family size Pavlova putting cream on top and adding the Pulp of the Passionfruit on top of the cream.
See picture below of Pavlova – for a lovely Afternoon Tea with friends or family.
If you are used to making Lemon Butter it is good when cooking to add some Passionfruit Pulp to make a different kind of Spread for your toast or bread.
You can of course make Passionfruit Butter on it’s own.
Another way is put to the pulp (not too much) into your jug of Water of Lemon Water in the fridge and drink cold as a refreshing drink.

On a Video in our own house, in the kitchen or the lounge – room,maybe in the bedroom or even in the bath. What does it really matter?
On here we can have a laugh. We can laugh or sing or any old thing!Some people dance to peculiar tunes, they put their gyrating’s on for all to see on the public Video T.V.
While behind closed doors forgetting – really that we can all see.What a wonderful world the Lock-down can be.
I think now I’ll have a cup of tea.Wait a minute – is there more? No I’ll just close the door.

Ithought this would be a nice photo to put here today as we now have Passion Fruit Season here.
Have put this on instead of a Basket of Flowers to start off the Blog today.
So – Recipes for Passion Fruit.
First of all we can just eat them straight from the Vine when they are fully ripe, just cut in half and scoop out to eat or – cut the top off and eat with a spoon like you would holding and egg.
Next: Well they go very well if you scoop out and put over the top of Vanilla Ice-cream. To make it more of a meal add Rice Bubbles to the dish, Honey and maybe some nuts. Or another Cereal that you prefer.
You can freeze the Passion Fruit Pulp in Ice Cube containers to use at a later time. Can drop one cube (or more) into your jug of Lemon Juice in the fridge, it makes a refreshing drink in the Summer months.
Here is a Link to the Book.……
