Having a baking friend means...

...surprise gifts of cake!

After discovering the lovely arrangement on my doorstep from Grace yesterday, I received this delicious cake today from Anissa!

Anissa is my very sweet and thoughtful neighbor who found me in working in the garden last weekend as she was strolling with her husband. Lucky for her - and more for me - she stopped because after my generous sweet potato harvest from the side yard garden, I remembered I tucked a few plants in my backyard potager as well. I had just dug a bag's worth and passed them all along to Anissa. Sweet potatoes must be the "pay it forward" food. I can't tell you what is in the cake, but what I CAN tell you is that it's delicious with my glass of milk. A delightful late night treat!


  1. Love those friends that bake. It looks delicious! They are probably glad to have friends that grow sweet potatoes. Have a nice Thanksgiving!

  2. Hi Wendy~~ You've sure got yourself a great network of friendships! Your gift-cake looks delicious!!

  3. You have had a pretty good couple of days, flowers and a cake. Pay it forward is fabulous.
    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  4. The cake looks really yummy! Today my neighbour passed me some pots after I gave her a pot of my plant. Exchanging gifts is also a good way to build relationship :-D

  5. Wendy,
    You have hit the jackpot this week! You are truly blessed to have such people to count as friends.
    And that cake looks like something I could scarf in seconds.
    Did you get the recipe?
    I hope you have a wonderful visit with family today!
    Thanks for commenting on my blog, you are such a sweety.

  6. You are obviously as good at cultivating flesh and blood relationships as you are at nurturing your virtual friends here.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Wendy, wished my neighbors were as
    friendly and thoughtful with gifts! That cake would go really good with my coffee right now!
    Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friend ;)

  8. Wendy, I have given your blog the Best Blog Award. You can visit my blog in the morning to read about it. Do not feel you have to accept it, no pressure.

  9. Wendy,
    Just popped in to let you know an award waiting for you on my blog! Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. My goodness, does that cake look scrumptious!


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
