Carmela's flowers

Not a clue what this plant is ....but Carmela grows several on the front steps of our building. 

The pods are about two inches long and the entire stalk is about two feet long.  There are a bunch of the stalks on each plant and soon all of them will be covered with these pods.

Really good Orange Cake

Made this cake from the new
Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove Cookbook's wonderful!
Her recipe suggests topping it with a fresh orange juice-powder sugar glaze ....but I think it's perfect without a glaze.  
Goes together quickly, not a lot of ingredients ....
longest hands-on part was beating the egg whites -
even that didn't take very long.

This one won't last long in our house! 
Will be making it often .. while orange season lasts.
