Small Delights (v)
Monday, 31 March 2014
The cherry tree continues to delight not only me but bumble bees and yesterday several peacock butterflies.
A small posy of spring flowers from the garden are looking particularly delightful in my Blue of Devon jug. This little jug was a Christmas present and I love it so much that I think I must start a collection of Blueware.
A cluster of 'day's eyes' among the cherry blossom petals.
An improvised plum and almond tart made with leftover puff pastry and some frozen September plums. The filling is the same as the one used in this tart. Small, but delicious.
Three particularly nice cards for Mothering Sunday yesterday from my offspring. The freesias were from Tom, there was wine from George and chocolates from Katie. I knew there was a good reason why I had three children.
And here is March's sampler. This March has truly marked the beginning of spring. Here's to more of it, bluebells in the green woods, long evenings, bright mornings and lots of sunshine.
