Sugarcraft inspiration from an African Creeper

As I get more involved in sugarcraft, a transformation has occurred. I have become closer to Nature and its perfect sytem. I had waited patiently for this African creeper above, to bloom despite skeptism, but I knew that one day it will ! It did, and my faith and trust in Nature's system is re-inforced. Currently, its raining heavily in Francistown and I can see a dramatic change in climate of Botswana. And I wonder, if to change, like other things, is inevitable. Here are some flowers that are dancing in the rain in my garden.

The pictures are of high resolution & can become screen savers
I am working on a cake and will soon post the pics.....

Hi cynthia
First of all, a big thank you for your post on reminds one of the aroma of the homeland.
Yes, i agree that nothing can compare to Nature. We fill colours in cakes and try to imitate but Nature reveals the plain truth - the perfect beauty. The beauty that improves our inner beauty and gives hope, as you say. As is said, 'to improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often.'

How your photographs have lifted my spirits today. Here in the UK the weather has been horrible, grey, non-stop rain, windy, cold and frosts. I don't think I've left anything out!
How lucky you are to see such beautiful flowers today.

Hi Margaret
I remember the school poem by William Wordsworth,way back during my ICSE years.


I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

I am happy that the flowers lifted your spirits. As they also say' if winter comes, can spring be far behind'
Cheers !

Hi Vijaya
Thanks ... in the process of completion..rains are a little bit of a problem for drying of the sugarpaste, but keeping my fingers crossed.

hi krystyna
i always love your blogotorial and the pictures of mangoes are lovely.. I think pooja's initiative of tri-clour theme has worked wonders. Thanks for stopping by.. some flowers are african daisies and blossom flower.I still do not know the name of the flower from the african creeper !
I loved the words used for me 'sweet soni' on your blog. It gave a pinch of inspiration.

How beautiful Soni!

Poetry, the natural beauty of a garden, and sugar art! The three marry so well. I am very appreciative of the glimpse into life on your side of the world and it is so wonderful to see that your life of sugar artist holds many of the same wonders as mine over here in the States.

Sweet Regards,
