Flap Jacks

with Sleeping Hybiscus

A lovely Basket of Flowers for today….The Red ones hanging down are Sleeping Hibiscus, they do not open any more than they are on the photo, therefore called Sleeping but are very pretty and can grow into a nice hedge.  Geraldton Wax and Yellow Lantana with the Brown coloured leaves make a beautiful display. 

How about a Recipe:

Here we have one for Flap Jacks, the children will love them, they can be cut into squares and used for Afternoon Tea.

Ingredients:   6oz. Butter or Margarine: 6oz – Demerara Sugar; 8oz Rolled Oats; pinch of salt.

Method:      Cream the  Butter until soft.  Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Butter.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9″ by 12″ spread evenly.  Bake for 30mins.  at Reg. 5. (about 180deg Cel) When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

What about a Poem then ?

It is called –  * I Just Remembered *

I just remembered, did I forget to do that

or – did I do it and forget that I did it?

I forget now but if I do it now and

 I have already done it, that means that I

would have done it twice.

Best if I don’t  do it now.

 I may not have done it at all

if I didn’t do it in the first place.

What a dilemma, why did I just think that

I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.

Well I remember thinking that I should

but I wonder if I did.

  The best thing is to go and look I suppose –

– now what was it that I think I forgot to do.

I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa

and think about it later.

Maybe you can relate to the poem……as we get older it is sometimes a problem to remember where we have put things in that special place – the place where we thought we would remember that we had put them.  Eventually they will be in a special place just to surprise us – when we do find them.   !!!

Don’t be Fearful

100_4957

This is a beautiful hanging Basket of a Coleus Plant.

I thought you may like to see this lovely hanging basket that I had a few years ago.  It goes to show that you can do something different instead of just putting this particular plant in a pot or in the ground.  It seemed to love being up high and even produced some flowers as you can see in the photo.

Yes we did have a drip going in – to water it, the drip was on a timer with other hanging baskets at the time.  You can of course water by hand with one of those watering cans with a long spout. 

Don’t be fearful – it is a lovely hobby to experiment with your plants – then to enjoy showing them off to your friends.  Lots of cuttings can be taken from this plant and they will grow quite easily for you

Hope you can have some fun planting a new plant soon and watching it grow and flourish, even a small one in a pot.

Bible Verse:  Psalm: 27 verse 1   The Lord is my light and my Salvation – whom shall I fear?

*****

So today let us not be fearful of things or people.  Let us not be fearful to try new things even just to plant that new plant or to cook something new for dinner  –  maybe some Jam Tarts as in the above recipe – they are delicious with the coconut on them.

Children can have fun making them with your help – so don’t be fearful to help your child to learn to cook.

I know they make a big mess but if they cook it (or help you) they are more likely to want to eat it. 

Learning to cook and fend for themselves with different recipes helps them in lots of ways, with reading the recipes, mixing the ingredients, talking and asking questions as well it helps their comprehension of measurements, oven temperatures or just cooking on top of the stove.

* Have a lovely messy day –

fearlessly cooking something nice for yourself or a friend *

May God Bless You & Me today
