My sister and her baby.
Mr. Antimultivitamin, my sister’s boyfriend.
See the face there?
A white peacock.
I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen magnolias. I forgot how utterly stunning they were.
There were some giant fishes in there.
Reflections. Love them.
I’m not sure what she saw in there, but it must have been intriguing.
I’m pretty sure she wanted to go fishing.
But then she gave it up and just posed for more pictures.
I’ve always liked how colourful peacocks are.
Her name is Eda. [edʌ]
She’s got the greatest ears ever.
She can ride a tram like a pro.
She can pose.
And she’s just the cutest puppy in the whole wide world. ♥
My favourite flowers. ♥
In April, I had lavender & pink pepper chocolate for the first time ever. It was really good.
Guacamole dip, veggies and M&S nachos.
Carrots, kohlrabi & celery sticks. Healthy & delicious – win/win.
I tried the Spiced Passionata at Costa. I love all things spicy and this really hit the spot.
Eggs, sausages, portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, bacon and a spot of brown sauce. It doesn’t get any better than that.
And some of my current M&S favourites.
Pork & Bramley Apple Sausages. Try them — because you can actually taste the apples and they’re delicious.
Farmhouse paté. We don’t really eat paté but this one was gone within 24 hours of buying it.
Oh and kippers! I love me some kippers.
Kippers with a raw carrot & fennel salad.
Really? That’s all you did in a week, tree? How disappointing.
Well that’s much better.
+ bonus lilacs
I check on them every day now. It won’t be long. They’re my favourite flowers and I can’t wait to have them everywhere in the house. I wish they would last longer.
There’s this cherry tree in a car park near here. I can never get enough of it in the spring.
I love sunny mornings.
There are some leaves on the old chestnut tree as well now.
Fresh garlic. I really love the smell and taste.
Mead. Haven’t had that for years!
Honey products. They had some interesting cremes and tinctures there.
This is what we call a busy square around here.
Mmm, baked goods.
Fingers crossed for better weather next time!
A handful of my customised muesli mix.
They also have some new chocolate bars so we decided to try one of them. This is a bar of of chilli con pecan chocolate (dark + white chocolate with a spot of chilli and and orange). It is, of course, heavenly.
This was a foggy Wednesday morning at about 6am. April 10th. Looks more like November, doesn’t it?
This is my favourite linden tree. No leaves yet. But next week is actually supposed to be quite warm so maybe there’s still hope.
Everything is still very grey and bare.
And, just to make a point: this is April 11th, 2011.
How very December of you, March!
