Lunch today & Orange Flowers :-)

Zest profile image

Hi everyone,

My lunch today is an Egg Mayonnaise and salad wrap followed by a slice of homemade banana seeded fruit cake and a cup of coffee. I enjoyed it.

I'm also including photos that I took this morning, whilst out on a walk - and I'm interested in what the orange flowers are called - I know the one on the left is a Red Hot Poker (even though it's orange), and I'm tagging you crazyfitness, as you got me thinking about this with your previous reply. Also the flowers in the middle are orange, but are different flowers, and I wonder what they're called.

Here are some photos from my walk:

Hi Zest, I think the flowers you were wondering about are called crocosmia.

I am impressed by your ongoing commitment to posting these. Well done. Vx

Hi Jerry

Egg mayo is a lovely combination. I've never heard of the crocosmia flowers before, so it was good to know their name.

Beautiful views Zest..

Hi Blackcat1M

I'm glad you like the pictures, and I'm sorry to hear you've had a really painful night. I hope you'll get some relief during the day.

Yes, I have the recipe for the cake - it is my own recipe, although I got lots of help from another member called Ruth_canal_runner - I'd not have managed to get such a great recipe without her help.

Here is a link to my version:

In the loaf I made most recently I included some dried cranberries instead of sultanas, and I missed out the 25g sliced almonds (as I didn't have any) and it was a very tasty cake.

I tend to freeze it in slices, so I can de-frost them as needed.

Hope you have an enjoyable day, and that you get some relief from your pain.

Take care,

Zest :-)
