Gorgeous! Every time I buy raspberries for a recipe, my son gobbles them up before I have the chance to use them. :)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Tania said...

Given that I am roosting atop a hot water bottle as a low wintry fog descends over our house (and I debate whether it's COLDER IN OR OUT) you have achieved quite something. For a second or two there it was only about summer!

But then I realised I could see my breath.

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

And what lovely cheerful colors to start my morning as I drink my cup of coffee!

Carmel said...

You've made this look so beautiful. Roses Lime Cordial got me through my pregnancies, when I just couldn't drink straight water. I also love Roses Lime Marmalade on my toast in the morning. It's my little bit of England, plus I collect the jars to use as votives, vases and other decorations. Will have to buy a bottle of cordial on my next trip to the shops.
