Yesterday, the market was tiny due to inclement weather, so we spent most of the afternoon at The Field, sowing salad in the polytunnel and preparing beds for aubergines and chillies.
Then today, the carboot sale was cancelled. It's been a rainy windy sort of day, so I made tomato soup and a kind of basil pesto with almonds instead of pine nuts which was delicious. Then we ate a handful of cherries. Then we put up some little shelves in Iris's room to house burgeoning treasure collection. And looked at what was growing in the garden.
I thought I'd post some uplifting images of brighter days from my archive. Of course, now the sun has kind of come out and we're going to venture out for a little walk.
Oh, that pesto was sooooo good.
The first rose of the year. Raggedy and pink, it smells delicious.
The proper sort of pink.
On this date, five years ago, we lit a fire on the beach.
*Oh, and of course, I still managed to find a few bits and pieces against all odds.
Books - are you bored of books? Not me. I can't get enough.
Pretty girl silhouette.
The treasure-laden shelves.
