The kind of garden I would love to have if I lived in a country where everything didn't continually perish in the heat!

I really like Mark Weaver's designs.

I decided to make vegan cinnamon scrolls. I found a recipe online but to be honest it was too hard for someone who has never even made bread before. So I improvised from the recipe on the yeast packet. Baking with yeast takes a long time and as I didn't have enough time for the dough to sit for a second time before rolling an baking, the scrolls ended up a bit thicker than I would've liked. They were still yummy however, very rich and decadent and the kind of dish where you really only need one, it's enough to send you into a sugar coma!
Craig and Bec made these amazing dips and bread as well as a divine garlic aioli and some lovely tempeh strips.
Lisa made this yummy okonomiyagi which was something I've not tried before and very tasty.
There were also another potato dish some amazing jelly cakes and lamingtons made by Toby and Kristy which I loved as I have a soft spot for them. I had a to have lie down and a coffee after I got home to recover from all the sugar before we went to the next social engagement, an evening barbeque followed by Oz Rock karaoke. A fun, action filled day!

I have wistful memories of running under sprinklers, before they got banned due to the drought...
This sentiment sums up the blisteringly hot weather we have in Melbourne at the moment. It was 43c (110F) yesterday and only went down to 35c (95F) over night :(
