Why have I never bothered with them before? They're wonderful - such charming little things.
It's been spring-like almost all month - very un-Marchlike. And more things are ready to bloom.
Last year the daffodils were blooming on April 16th.
On Thursday, my freezer bag of vegetable scraps was full, so I made stock. I am ever grateful to Leila for suggesting this - it never occurred to me before!
I used some today for a thin sauce over rice, and yesterday in the mac and cheese. It'll soon be time to use the scraps for compost, but now I feel torn between both uses for them. I do like to make compost, though.
My current issue of British Country Living gave me big surprise yesterday; I was looking at an article about storage and organizing,
when I saw someone familiar on the page -
the Blessed Mother!
I can hardly believe it.
Joining Rosie and Leila this week.
