Goodness! After dark evenings and short wet days the spring has arrived and picking lovely primroses to put in guest bedrooms and on the breakfast table has to be one of the most happy tasks. Things are pretty soggy in the garden but plants are waking up and the hellebores are in full bloom. I love this time of year, we have had some blustery walks around North Wessex Downs AONB. Exploring landscape history and enjoying the incredible views. Marmalade is made ready and a friend gave me a whole tray of Sicilian lemons so juicy lemon cake it is!
