When I am feeling low I turn to flowers.
When my daughter Libby feels blue, she bakes.
And with a cake this cheerful, how could you not smile?
It has got me in the mood for a bit of Jubilee baking - but in this case with ingredients of hydrangeas, roses and allium.
I took these photos some years ago on the Jane Packer stand at Hampton Court Flower Show. A lady who is sadly missed by fellow flower lovers.
With the sun blooming at Chelsea, the Jubilee just around the corner and Libby baking in the kitchen, I thought it was time to bring these photos out again.
It seems many florists are inspired by cake - these from Rachel Lilley, who used to have a beautiful flower shop in Bath.
And here a cake of flowers, inspired by Jessie, The Poundbury Florists.
Have a happy Jubilee.
