This year's first...

Water bomb war. It's just possible that dressing in a wetsuit and goggles may have given Tilly something of an unfair advantage.

Garden grown rhubarb. Just a few weeks ago this rhubarb was still buried below a frozen ground. Yesterday it was baked in a pudding.

Saturday evening G&T. Sipped outdoors in the warmth of the day's fading sunshine. Well deserved after a day of garden labouring.

This weekend the sun shone long and warm upon us here in Suffolk, we soaked up every single moment of those precious rays. It's so good to take life outdoors again.

I have rhubarb on my shopping list for tomorrow (I sadly don't grow it, though I have tried). I'm going to make strawberry and rhubarb muffins from Rachel Allen's Bake book

I think we are a few weeks behind you, our days still have a bit of chill to them. You words and pictures are a reminder of things to come.

It is so lovely to see the sun again isn't it? I love the thought of all those long warm summer evenings to come.

Looks like the most perfect weekend.

Already beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed by our very prolific rhubarb plants! Must come up with some more ideas...

Long may this sunshine last!

In the sunny north, my rhubarb needs another week but we to have enjoyed an afternoon in the garden. Don't you just love spring.
