A glorious weekend of clear skies and sunshine.
We ventured to a local farmers market and bought some fresh produce ; crisp asparagus, home made porcini ravioli, locally smoked trout, vine ripened tomatoes, a bundle of purple organic garlic (I am a selfish garlic feine), broad beans and these native flowers.
Much time spent in the garden, trimming trees, clearing dead fern stumps along the side of the house. Our first magnolia flower bloomed. And the herb garden is going crazy, much thanks to the weeks rain.
I'm going to attempt a Herriott Grace style cake for JD's sister's belated birthday celebrations. Wish me luck.
