I began with the pudding cake, greasing a square pan and heating the oven. I mixed up the batter, then cooked the raspberries in a syrup along with some raspberry preserves. Here you can see the batter ready to go in the pan, and the syrup cooking on the stove in the two top pictures. The botton pictures show the raspberry syrup poured on top of the batter in the pan, ready to go in the oven, then the finished pudding cake. Which, if I do say so myself, was quite delicious!

Energized by the beautiful weather
Today was another beautiful day. The temperature got up to seventy degrees Fahrenheit and it truly felt like spring. I got some more seeds planted, then Mr. G and I did a little yard work. Mostly it was Mr. G. doing he work, trimming shrubs and raking up pine cones and branches that had fallen in the wind and rain, although I served as consultant on the pruning and bagged up my fair share of pine cones. Then the girls and I went for a little walk enjoying the weather and the scents and sights, which included some flowers blooming and some about to burst into bloom.
