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.
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,
