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.   !!!

If I give all I possess.


A Lovely Bouquet of Flowers for Today.

If you have no one to buy flowers for you, remember when you go shopping – maybe treat yourself to a small bunch or even a potted small plant (they last longer than the cut flowers). Instead of having a cup of coffee while shopping, the coffee money could be spent on a small potted plant to take home to look at in the kitchen or lounge room.  It is surprising how a flower in the room  can make such a difference.

Also it is lovely to surprise your friend if visiting them with a small posy of fresh picked flowers or pretty leaves from your garden.  

A good idea is to wrap the stems in a couple of tissues, wet them under the tap then lay the flowers on a square of silver cooking foil and wrap into a nice posy.

If you have any flowers in your garden this is not going to cost you any money.

Not many people seem to have a vase of flowers in their house.

Even a big Jar with fresh cut leaves can look very nice.


1 Corinthians 13 Verse 3

If I give all I possess to the poor

and surrender my body to the flames

but have not love,

I gain nothing.



 May God Bless You today, even to see, touch or smell the perfume of a Flower
