delightfully busy

This has been a delightfully busy weekend.

Baking, gardening, cheering on the German soccer team...

The garden is in full bloom, peonies and roses competing with bellflowers of all shades between white and cerulean. I even took some of the peonies inside to have a little of their lovely scent right at my desk.

And of course, more bread. My scoring still looks random, I fear, but the colour if the crust is great, don't you agree?

Peonies may be wonderful, and yet I still think fresh bread smells decidedly better.

Look at your bread! It all looks delicious!

I've just found your blog. It's pretty amazing that you make so much bread on the weekend! I've always wanted to make bread, but never really tried. Maybe i'll have to give it a go!

@Mimi - Thanks, dear!
@ursula - Honestly, I only started to make bread after our favourite baker stopped making the bread we loved. But it is not too difficult, and gets really swift and easy with a little practise. Just take the plunge, making your own bread is one of the most rewarding things I can think of.
