Today had an almost spring feel about it. The morning was cold but the sun shone all day long and it was warm enough to take off my cardigan while I was working. I need a lot more winter so when it returns proper, I'll be grateful. It was a truly glorious day.
The ducks made the most of the greenery from our recent rain. The pens have dried out but it still much nicer for them to be roaming and ranging trimming the grass and foraging for bugs.
Broad beans are on the way up. They are one of my favourite vegetables especially teamed with asparagus so I am a little impatient. I have also never seen them in any of our local greengrocers or supermarkets so home grown is the only way for us to go.
Kerryanne's blog. I used this pattern at Christmas time too and I don't think I will make a crocheted topper again. These are quick and pretty and practical. What more can you ask for?
Bunting, aprons and a picnic blanket are next on my list. That is once I have cooked our butter chicken for dinner.
