Beautiful Poinciana Tree

Lovely Shade from Poinciana Tree on our Driveway.

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.

Here is a closeup photo of the Poinciana Flower

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.

They are of course sitting in a Wet Oasis Block in the basket to keep them moist for the day before bringing them home from Church to put in a vase of water for my room indoors.

1 Kilo-Ribs (Pork, Beef or Lamb); 1 cup – Tomato Sauce; half cup – B.B.Q. Sauce; 3 – Garlic Cloves (mashed); 1 Tbsp – Maple Syrup; 1 Tbsp – Vinegar.

I now have a new Book that is on the Amazon site. You may like to check it out and pass on to any friends or family that may be interested. It is a game that can be played with Adults and children, especially good on long car journeys or just for fun to help children with their learning.

It tells you how to play the game on the inside pages.

I hope you have a Lovely Day today – maybe find a Flower to put in a vase in your Kitchen to look at while doing the dishes???????????

Matthew: 19 verse 14. Jesus said “let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”

Sunlight gives life

Sunshine looks good on these flowers.

It is good to let some Sunshine into our lives, to open the doors, open the windows around the house to let the Sunshine in sometimes. Not of course in the heat of the Summer when we need to keep the house cool. The flowers in the photo above look so lovely and fresh.

Maybe bring some yellow flowers indoors sometimes as a reminder of the Sunshine….it is surprising how they can lift the spirit just to have them in a vase on the table or somewhere where you can see them as you walk past during the day.

Remember our Wildflower Season…..Look what the Sunlight has brought to life. Acres and Acres of Wildflowers in Western Australia. As you travel through the North West of our State the colours change from Acres of Purple or of White. What a wonderful sight to travel through. We really do have a God who showers the Sunshine on the righteous and the unrighteous. None of us could possibly produce a marvellous setting as the one above.

Here is a Recipe for today as it is our Avocado Season I thought you may like this simple way to use some of them:

Avocado on Toast

Slice Ripe Carnarvon Avocado onto Toast,sprinkle with Vinegar and Pepper.

Very nice for lunch with Salad or on it’s own.

This is an Oil Painting of Daffodils for my Mother (Her favourite Flowers)

So we can let a bit of Sunshine into our lives by cooking something nice for our everyday meals. Experiment with something new for ourselves or our family and friends. We can let the Sunshine come into our hearts by doing something nice for others.

Romans: 1 verse 16 says: For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.

So we need not be ashamed to bless others with our cooking or by just giving them a small posy of Flowers. In that way a little Sunshine comes into our lives and into theirs.

Even at the evening of our day we can sometimes enjoy the lovely SUNLIGHT which gives life to all on this planet that we live on.

I hope you have a lovely day today and let a little Sunshine into your life.

*Enjoy some CAKE today*

How about making a Basket of Flowers in a Hanging Basket. This may not look the prettiest but it did look nice hanging there with different kinds of plants and flowers in.

Today I thought it would be nice to think about having and making some cake today. Especially as for this month of July there is a special offer on our Recipe book which features the following recipe. It is very quick and easy to make and does not have many ingredients.

Only 3 (THREE) ingredients. It does work very well for beginners or for experienced cooks.

This is good to use for Morning or Afternoon tea – if you have guests coming you can slice and put butter on if you like.

Here is the LINK for the eBook which has a discount for this month of July

“Carnarvon Favourite Recipes”

Proverbs: Chapter 25 verse 21: says – If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink…….

Well there you are then, we can share our Cake not only with our friends but with others who we may not be very fond of – so that small piece of cake may become a blessing to them and to ourselves.

Cake is really very good if filled with fruit and cooked with love and care.

I Hope you have a lovely day testing out a new Recipe so that you can enjoy eating and sharing it with your family and friends.

Also feel free to share this Blog with your friends.

Thank you.

Children are a Blessing

* Here we have a lovely Basket of Flowers *

The two red flowers are sleeping Hibiscus.

That is because they do not open up any further

than what you see in the photo.

 However they really do help to make the arrangement look

very pretty though.
