Be Our Guest

Spring is such a lovely time in the garden with spring bulbs bursting into bloom, 

but we have a special little visitor this year, and I'm so excited.

I put bird boxes all over the Wendy-House garden a few years back and they have just been ornaments until now.

Apart from an awful incident last year when a swarm of wasps decided to call one of them home - very unpleasant!

However this Spring I have been taking tea in the summer house and watching a darling little blue tit make one of our houses it's home.

I feel honoured!

Foodilicious - Julie and Julia

Mouthwatering movie!

If you have already had your fill of chocolate eggs and are looking for an alternative this Easter.......

Julie & Julia

is the most delicious piece of filmography!

If you love
a smattering of style
(not necessarily in that order)
you will LOVE this movie.

A definite flavour of Fanny Cradock!

Scenes from the sort of dinner party you definitely want to be invited to.

The images of Meryl's kitchen are just delightful.

I loved Meryl in Mama Mia and couldn't imagine she would be so utterly different in this role as Julia. She is surely one of our modern day screen greats.

Mesmerising images of fresh fish stalls without a single piece of shrink wrapped cod.

And finally, if you don't want to go straight home and make some bruschetta to eat with a good full bodied red wine......
well frankly, I'll eat my '1950's jaunty hat.'

Bon appetit
Happy Easter
