A day in our garden...............

We have had the most beautiful weather here today.  So warm in the garden, that we only needed sleeveless shirts on!  How nice to get such a wonderful day for the weekend.

Alexandra helped along for some of the time, then she made us the most delicious lunch.  We picked a Chinese Cabbage as well as Spring Onion and Chives from the garden and she made the lovliest coleslaw which we ate with yummy jacket potatoes - of course there was sour cream as well!!!

Alexandra makes the best scones.  These were served with strawberry jam and of course a little dollop of whipped cream.


We have a bumper crop of lemons this year.  I think it was something like 62 lemons!  Remember back here when I had a much different harvest!  Now we have dozens of eggs and lemons - lemon delicious pudding, lemon meringue tart, lemon butter - where to start.

We picked the first head of Broccoli today as well.  It is so wonderful to grow our own food.

Tonight we enjoyed yummy little Dutch Pancakes spinkled with a little sugar and drizzled with delicious fresh lemon juice.

Today I potted up 25 punnets of seedlings.  I just love doing this.  It is such a promise of a beautiful Spring to come after the Winter. 

I love beautiful days in the garden.  Mindless. Peaceful. Relaxing. Refreshing. Pure Bliss.
