Fall Clematis and more


The Sweet Autumn Clematis is once again absolutely covered with fragrant white flowers.  It blooms on new growth so in early Spring it gets cut  back drastically.  Once it gets warmer it begins its rampant growth. As you can see, once it reaches the house it starts to grow up over the sunroom window.





It's a good thing I took that picture yesterday because today the rain is coming down in sheets and it is just nasty out there.  A good day for baking. Since this is the weekend when we in Canada celebrate our Thanksgiving I had things I needed to bake. But before I did that I tried a new recipe. For lemon curd. Have you ever made any?  I'm not even sure how I'll serve it but I wanted to try it.
 

Here's what I baked: two pumpkin pies and white buns.   I see the pie on the right cracked but that will all be covered with whipped cream. Or, I should say, Cool Whip.

I wonder how some people's buns are all the same size... is there a trick I never knew about?
My family is used to my at times rather  odd- looking  results but they assure me that the main thing is the taste and I tend to agree. But I'd still like to know how to get those buns all the same!

Hope you are all safe and warm in spite of the weather,


   Thanks for visiting,

  1. Your baking looks delicious! I love your Sweet Autumn Clematis. We just arrived home from our walk and we saw one on a fence here. I plan on taking my camera soon and get a photo of it. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I've never figured out the secret to even sized buns either....but like you say--taste is what really matters!

  3. Your clematis looks very content where it is growing. How beautiful and even more so to think that it is fragrant. Too bad the rain is preventing you from sitting out there and enjoying it.
    I have not tried to make lemon curd. Yours looks very tasty.
    The pies and buns also look tasty. I think the Mennonite Girls Can Cook site has a video on bun making. Perhaps it would shed some light on keeping them a uniform size. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  4. That beautiful clematis vine is unbelievable! The high winds today blew the arbor with the chocolate over. Hopefully we can get it up again, when this storm ends. Those bun look perfect to me. If only I could bake, and grow flowers like you. I would be so happy.
