Sunday visitors and a slice of cake.

Imagine my delight this morning when I saw we had some more Goldfinch visitors to our bird feeder.

The news is obviously getting around and these birds are so lovely and colourfu.

It really was a delight to watch them.

I tried a new cake recipe the other day posted on a blogger friend's page.  It is very tasty - the only thing I should have done was use a bigger cake tin as I didn't have enough room for the topping, so had to transfer it to another tin and have it poured over more like icing.  But it still worked.

The recipe can be found here.


  1. It was lovely to see the birds at the feeder, what a joy.

  2. I think those are some of the most beautiful birds I've seen in my life. Do you happen to know what they are?

  3. I have seen a pair of Goldfinches here on Lewis for the last few years but I think they are accidentals because they are a flock bird. When I lived in New Zealand I had flocks at The Cottage all the time. They are beautiful birds.
