Our garden is full of roses, along with many other plants, but roses must be my true favourite.
Mick and I will be going of to the David Austin rose centre in a couple of weeks time. it's not far from Telford, (another lovely place to visit) I'm sure that we'll come back with something special. It's truly worth a visit. They have a lovely Old English style tea room, with the most exquisite delights to tempt anyone. The gift shop is an Aladdins cave, with rose covered china teapots, to the most luxurious bathtime treats. All this and beautiful show gardens with experts on hand to help and advise. Then all you have to do is walk around the vast beds of roses for sale. Heaven! I can't wait !
My camera is already in my bag, and I'll be taking lots of pictures and no doubt bringing something else home too!

So, a chocolate cake it was. I must confess, this one was filled with whipped cream. I always whip the cream and then leave it to "settle" in the fridge for a couple of hours before using to sandwich the cake together. It seems to hold much better.
How long di it last? Not long ....and hubby has requested one for his birthday next week. I'm sure I can manage that! Maybe I'll put some strawberries on it too! Watch this space!
