Christina's birthday


Yesterday was the 184th birthday of Christina Rossetti. Our friend Chris made the most amazing birthday cake for her, worthy of the author of "Goblin Market": "Figs to fill your mouth, / Citrons from the south... Grapes fresh from the vine, / Pomegranates full and fine..." My drawing skills are really not up to the challenge so I append a photograph, too.
