Asparagus season is here! I think that it has to be my favourite vegetable. Good job really because we'll be eating a lot of it over the next few weeks. One of the great things about living here is that we eat in season. Right now you can get peaches and plums in the supermarket that have been shipped in from California but really, why would you want to? Eating only what's in season and locally produced makes fruit and vegetable a real treat. We look forward to them.
I thought that I'd miss going to Tescos and being able to get whatever I wanted whenever I wanted it and for a while, I did. But now, the seasonal way makes more sense, so much more sense.
Steph spotted the redwork embroidery in the last post and asked for a closer look. These little cushions are filled with Wairarapa lavender that smell divine.
I've been working in pastel shades as well. Great for taking onto the front proch and sitting in the sun.
Until next time...
