Must admit to being currently obsessed by this maze at 13th century monastery, Santiago de Compostella- (repost from @savoygardens via @debbytenquist). What looks like a small, flat courtyard from above has steps descending to a well, watched over by a stone angel... so who clips these beautiful designs- and how???

Our solemn and dignified African angels are the stars in this project’s crown... each one is a personal and original piece by the maker, with subtle variations on the original design. If you scroll through this gallery you’ll see what I mean... #africanangels #tall #strong #calm #celebration #guardianangels #heartsofafrica #lilies #floweringnow #wingedspirits #sendinglove #petabecker #madebyprojekt

The pears caramelised briefly in bubbling hot butter, with a little brown sugar, laid on a pillowybed of almond frangipane, tenderly encased in the thinnest, crispy French pastry- and sprinkled with lemon zest that’s been genltly mixed with caster sugar, to flutter down like little snowflakes.... and served with a dollop of creme fraiche on the side.... when the planets conspire against you, and every single device you own goes haywire: take a deep breath and lose yourself in the pleasures of baking a tart for the ones you love.... #pearandalmondtart #patesucree #frangipane #frenchbaking #onmytable #fortheonesyoulove #comfortfood

It’s Spring in our studio again, after 14 crazy days of freezing weather- and all our flowers are blooming.... Happy Monday!
