Thanks to Pipany's Poltisko Memoirs I was inspired to make Hot Cross Buns. Her post brought back memories of making them when my children were younger and they're so much tastier than anything from Tesco's or the Co-op. It's hard to make out the crosses because the mixture was a bit wetter than it should have been, so the buns 'rose outwards' when in the oven! They still taste nice though, if a little doughy.
The other photos were taken this morning around 8 am and also show the blackthorn just starting to come into flower and the colours were beautiful.
