The blossom on the trees has been pretty gorgeous this Spring, though I’m not sure that it has made up for the rain, the gales or the hail.  In the meantime we have been loving the ‘start of the year’ fruits: rhubarb, winter citrus such as blood orange, tangerine and lemon.

It will be a while before we get the delicious Summer fruits, but very much enjoying Spanish raspberries, fragrant Sorrento lemons and apricots this week. These are now flavouring our Spring water kefirs along with the garden herbs. The downpours and the extended daylight has brought the sweet anise, lemon verbena, mint and rose geranium out of hibernation, so all that rain is good for something! Roll on sunshine, we’re here for ya!   Photos by @hannahelisabethdesign
