White... with a touch of pink and green

At this time of the year one of my favorite flowers - the Forget me not - are in bloom. You can find them almost everywhere, bringing that tiny splash of powder blue to a green background. This year I found a small cluster of white ones in my parents garden


Another white spring beauty is the apple blossom - and I love that delicate touch of blushy pink


My sister's birthday was Friday, and for dinner we made sushi for the very first time.



Don't know quite what we did wrong, but the rice stuck to everything but itself, and since it stuck to the sea weed we ended up making all maki rolls - they look far from perfect, but they tasted great - how bad can it get with top grade salmon and rice ;-)

En av mine absolutte favoritter har alltid vært forglem-meg-ei, og mamma'en minn har også disse hvite i hagen sin. De er bare så nydelige!
Ønsker deg en flott ny og ubrukt uke,
Laila

Beautiful flowers! I never got a chance of taking pictures of our apple blossoms....it rained them off too soon.

I'd hate to admit it but in nearly fifty years in Japan, I have never made sushi. Yours looks great to me!

Anne Ida,

The flower pics are lovely!! We have been so dry here, no wild flowers at all this year. I did have some fruit flowers - apricot, peach and plum - but apple blossoms are the perfect shade! Waiting for my daughter to send my camera (still!!)so I can upload some pics and pass them on.Happy Quilting
