Remember the post from a couple of weeks ago? The one where I announced that winter was here? Well, it’s gone. The weekend was warm and sunny and spring flowers are starting to come out. Our tulips are just beginning to sprout, but the hyacinths have already produced some tiny flowers (left). On Saturday we went to a family lunch and considered eating outside. They had already set the table indoors, though, and didn’t want to move everything out to the terrace at the last minute, which was understandable, but a shame, really.
Those of you in colder parts of the world are probably hating us a little bit right now. We’ll talk about it later, when it’s 104 degrees here and we’re bemoaning our house’s lack of air conditioning.
