Our life outside of home has been filled with lots these past few weeks - all exciting projects but just phewww. I need a weekend/break/gap year etc. To be at home and better still in the garden, has been where we've been hiding out this weekend.
Once again our lemon tree is producing beautifully - they always make me so happy. Would love to hear your recipe ideas on how you think they'd best be used. My stomach is waiting in anticipation at the thought.
This weekend we built a proper fence around our kitchen garden and it looks pretty neat don't ya think? Our model here took advantage of the open gate and began enjoying...
this beautiful, rogue cos lettuce. I quickly shoo-shooed her but I am noticing all these gorgeous lettuces coming up from last seasons cos going to seed. This is the "don't-have-to-lift-a-finger" style of gardening I think is amazing as you watch nature go about its thing.
Just look at those luscious leaves, bursting with health and vitality too and begging to be eaten. We have been enjoying them with our lunch this weekend and I'm noticing their underlying fruity flavour when I eat the leaves by themselves.
We have also planted out some Washington Navels in our garden. It must be the weekend for citrus as we caught up with our neighbours at our local garden centre buying a lemon tree too. In fact it must have been the perfect weekend for gardening as the place was buzzing with people. I love how Spring wakes the inner gardner up from a Winter hibernation.
Our pansies are enjoying the Spring weather too as they smile happily up at the morning sun. We also have roses ready to plant which came from the most beautiful rose garden out in the country and I will take you for a little tour around there sometime soon.
Looking forward to seeing how you spent your weekend xo
