Today I wanted to share some photos of the very first giveaway that I have ever won! A few weeks ago Stacey at her lovely blog the VG Huis (a fellow Canadian blogger ) had a giveaway for these lovely glasses from CSN and I was so excited to win them.
Last evening when I came home they were sitting on my doorstep waiting for me.
So, today I have put them to good use.
Would you like some limeade?
They are so pretty-don't you think?
The lily of the valley is perfuming the house with it's sweet fragrance.
And my other excitement for the week was the arrival of the magazine Country and Country that did a feature of our garden-I know I already bragged but it was so nice to see it in print.
I took it in to show my Mom and she was as pleased as I was!
There can you see my name as the photographer? hehe
I picked some pretty tulips from the garden for a bouquet. Oh! and can you see the lilacs-they are almost blooming.Stacey at The VG Huis for this lovely giveaway-I am so happy I won these beautiful Perigord goblets from CSN.

We got some much needed rain yesterday with cooler temperatures and a few showers this morning so it is a good day here for some comfort food. The rhubarb is ready now in our garden so the first thing I make every year with it is rhubarb cobblecake.
After cutting up the rhubarb you cook it on top of the stove with sugar etc. (recipe follows)
This base is then topped with drop biscuit dough.
It is so good!
some whipped cream
and a cup of tea and I am ready to enjoy some old fashioned comfort food!
Here is the recipe in case you would like to try it.( click on to enlarge)
The flowers on the table are a pansy geranium and' freckles'
you can see where it got the name 'freckles'
