As tough as the coronavirus has been, there have been some silver linings to being home with more than the usual time on my hands! One of the biggest pluses has been tending to my garden, which, thanks to unseasonably cool, wet weather and a little good luck, has never looked better. These photos are from last week and the week before. Once the roses, shasta daisies, and clematis go, there are day lilies, hydrangea, crepe myrtle, and more daisies on the way! Yay!

Okay, back to cookies! Well, sort of . . . in order to keep my quarantine joy going, I've decided to honor the top ten cookies in our "Flower/Plant" clip set this week. They are all as glorious as the real thing - well, more so, because they can also be eaten! Without further ado (or photos of my garden ), here are the honorees on this week's hot list*, some of which may seem familiar because they've been featured before . . .

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
