Posy poses with fruit loaf

I am playing with media settings in my post today. Thanks to a few tips from  fellow blogger Maureen at  http://kiwis-soar.com/ , I finally found the confidence to look at the photo settings for my blog. It was hard to decide which settings to use but I eventually selected  the circles  because I thought they suited the floral nature of the photos.

If you would like to try your hand at making the delicious fruit loaf in the photos , the recipe can be found here¬† (http://www.healtheries.co.nz/healthy-and-gluten-free-recipes/healthy-cakes-and-slice-recipes/fabulous-fruit-loaf).¬† Personally, I think my photo looks more appealing than the Healtheries’ one but…….it’s not the look that matters but the taste. And this loaf tastes wonderful.¬† It’s full of dates and apricots, sultanas, linseed and wheat germ and, because I couldn’t help myself, I added ginger, which is not in the recipe, but should be; in my opinion.
