The dancing flames, dazzling us with their beauty and warming our hearts.
From light salad lunches we are now back to hearty soup.
Leek and potato soup with cheese and tomato flatbread, a winter favourite.
Who would have thought we are half way through May!
The few days of decent weather gave us a taste of Spring and tantalized us with hopes of Summer and a bountiful garden crop. In truth we now regret planting out the cauliflower and calabrese , the rain has given them quite a battering.
This little plant certainly looks a tad jaded.
The broad beans are growing steadily and have just started to flower.
The peas are just starting their journey and are showing great signs of growth.
The spring onions have gone from strength to strength and once again we are looking forward to enjoying the fruits of our labour.
We have tomato plants scattered all over in pots and hanging baskets co planted with French marigolds to keep the bugs away.
The lolla rossa lettuce is doing well for now, hopefully this adverse weather will not affect their growth.
Finally the rhubarb, ready for cutting again crumble is its destiny for the weekend. We have the family coming.
