Another Pretty Wee Flower


I haven't taken part in Lisa's link up  Macro Monday 
for absolutely ages so I thought I had better remedy that :)
So here is my addition - to go and see some great macro shots please press the link.

I just thought this was such a pretty wee flower  - as usual I have no idea what it is called, what I do know is I really liked it.

On a completely separate note. 
You all know about  the disasters I have had with my jam making. 
Well, there is this really great shop in Glasgow called Lakeland and it sells all sorts of things. 
Well Karen decided she wanted to buy some baking items and I thought I would buy a book on Preserves (not that I really needed another book!!!) and a can of Seville oranges for making marmalade. 
                      

 The can of oranges only cost me £1.99 and it supposedly makes 6lbs of marmalade - I don't think I could buy many oranges for that amount!  

So I am going to try (again) at the weekend to make some marmalade and you just know  I will tell you all about it!!! :) 
The third time just has to be lucky don't you think, lol.

What a pretty little flower. And, I just LOVE orange marmalade. I have a neighbor who makes the best I've ever had. I make bread and we trade. It's a win-win!

It's amazing you can purchase canned oranges for making preserves! I don't think we have them canned here. Let us know how the marmalade turns out. :)

Would love to hear how the marmalade making goes...I tried it a few years ago, but it turned out too sweet. I might try it again, one day...maybe with some lemon and grapefruit mixed in. Hope yours goes well!
