  1. Again, I have to say this is my favourite blog series of the many blogs I read right now. I love peeking into your laid-back summer, especially as the school holidays here in England haven't started yet. Beautiful!

  2. That cake look delicious! What a clever idea to use the flower as a "sparkler"!
    Enjoy the day!

  3. Wow thanks for the fabulous recipe! Our raspberries should be ready in a few weeks, I will be on that for sure!

  4. your pictures are so dreamy. makes me want to drink summer, and bottle it for year-round use. love it.

  5. Great shots, Maya. I'll have to try that syrup.

  6. That has to be the perfect summer dessert! What could be better than a cake topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and cream?
