  4. Hi Saskia,

    You are so thoughtful to make a cake for the birds, I'm afraid if I put one out the cats would devour it and the birds :(

    Thanks for visiting me today.

    You have a lovely blog here, full of wonderful photos.

    Have a god week.


    ps no blue skies in Ireland!

  5. OOOOH MY !! A BIRD CAKE! That is what I can do for them! Oh I need to find the recipe! But I wonder if our CHUBBY squirrels will get a hold of it! They are cunning and will find a way, at ALL COSTS, to invade our feathered friends' food! THis is so YOU...bright, beautiful, JOYful! Oh Saskia, it is a joy to see you visit and post. HAVING FUN? I AM TOO, although work is stressful and overloaded with too much, SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER and I am going to have fun.

    Merci ma belle pour tes mots de tendresse. Oh, vous tous, vous, mes amies, vous êtes super!!!!!

    BISES, Anita

  10. Buona domenica e felice inverno dolce Saskia!

  11. Hello Saskia

    How kind and thoughtful of you to remember the birds. To make and present to them a cake of such beauty to honour the magnificent shades of their plumage is I am sure beyond their expectations.

  12. Lovely photos of the children enjoying the snow. Loved the last one of deckchairs too!
    We must all think of the poor birds in this cold weather!

  13. Saskia, thankyou for such lovely eye candy, and for the message that Spring is on it's way.
    Thankyou for visiting me and leaving such lovely comments, they are much appreciated. Love Linda x

  14. De vogeltjestaart is om zo op te eten Saskia. Wat goed gedaan. Leuke foto van je kindjes. Denk je echt dat het al lente word? Hier sneeuwt het nu behoorlijk.Het kan nog best een poosje winteren. Maar ik hoop dat het over is hoor.
    Lieve groet van Riet

  16. Hello Saskia...I hope you are having a lovely Sunday....Your bird cake looks so good....they are such lucky birds that have their home in your garden!
    I love your heart warming photographs and yes...I can't wait for Spring...It's so cold and misty here today!
    Hope you have a great week,

  17. Oh, Saskia! How lovely! We've had a very mild winter this year, (Missouri, United States) with only a few days of REALLY cold temperatures. Expecting a couple of inches of snow tomorrow, which is OK with me! I AM looking forward to spring, though!

  18. Love your bird cake - such a sweet idea! I hope speing comes soon - i miss the green leavs and warm sunshine, But yes, let's make the most of what we have! Keep warm sweet friend and cuddle in with your loved ones! Veel liefs!

  19. Wat een vrolijke foto's Saskia! Heerlijk om in zo'n ligstoel te genieten van de zon en de ijspret om je heen. Je vogeltulband ziet er prachtig uit. Wat een goed idee.

    Is het gelukt om nog een tweede week in Engeland eraan vast te knopen?

    Een gezellige nieuwe week!

    Liefs van Madelief x

  20. Your birds must be very happy little birds with a cake like that one..yum! :D

  21. I love your joy and so will the birds with this fabulous sweet tweet to eat. Our winter really never began YET and it has been very unusual. We really do need the rain and snow for our water tables. Joyful week to you dear...

  22. Such lucky birds to have such a beautiful yummy looking bird seed cake! That will keep their tummies full!
    Wishing you a wonderful week Saskia!

  23. Dear Saskia,

    The birdies must love coming to visit you for their dinner, lovely idea.
    I love the sweet photos of your darling children enjoying the snow.

    Stay warm sweet friend, enjoy your week and I know Spring will be just around the corner.

  24. Dearest Saskia,

    Ah, winter fun for the kids; that's for sure. Birds have also their gourmet food so winter is good on your side.
    Have a great week and a Happy Valentine's Day!
    Love to you,

  26. Hi Saskia,
    The cake looks delicious! Is your birthday?
    Enjoy the week.

  27. Hi Saskia!
    Oh you have had winter... Here in New York, we've hardly had any snow... Shhhhh! I don't want Mother Nature to know that she skipped over us for four months! {heehee} I kind of like not having to shovel so much!

    I am certain that your birdies are loving the cake you made for them! What a treat!
    This reminds me to check up on my little ones outside. I haven't spoiled them lately!
    Thank you for the inspiration! I always can count on you for great cakes! :D
    Happy St. Valentine's Day, Saskia!
    Blessings and JOY always!
    ♥ Maria

  38. Liefste Saskia,

    Zo, vandaag mag Quinten iets lekkers kiezen voor zijn 4de verjaardag. Dat is heel bijzonder toch. Een knuffel en alle liefs vanuit een regenachtig maar lekker zacht Georgia.


  39. Die vogels zullen vast heel blij zien! Ziet er mooi uit ook in zo'n tulband vorm:)

  40. Wow, Thanks for the share, you always have great content …keep it up...
