A Touch of Heaven

26 Jun

So my Dad is an avid amateur photographer.

He is also a complete gentleman, and appreciates beauty in life.

On his current three month whirlwind, romantic trip of Europe, with the love of his life, who also happens to be my Mum (high-five for 28 years of crazy in love marriage) he has taken some photos which have taken my breath away.

It is no secret that I adore flowers. Anyone who knows me even remotely knows I have a love for anything floral, and dream about owning my own little florist one day, overflowing with pretty blooms and foliage.

These photos were taken by my Dad in Monet’s garden in Giverny, France.

I hope they take your breath away, as they did mine.

Intrigued by Zucchini Flowers…

16 Jun

 I am incredibly intrigued by the pretty and delicate flowers of the zucchini plant.

MasterChef seems to use these regularly, and the are often featured on the menus of fancy restaurants!

Has anyone ever cooked with these blossoms?

Have you ever eaten them?
