Today friend W and I met our friends P and D in Kirby Lonsdale at the super Italian Restaurant Avanti. I don't think the journey has ever been more beautiful. The wild flower meadows were yellow over with buttercups and in some cases white over with daisies. The grass verges were thick with cow parsley and pink campion, and there were young calves and lambs everywhere. What a lovely season Spring is. It was warm and sunny and the sky was blue. What more could anyone wish for ?
Might I suggest that the best addition would be a good lunch? Well, that is what we had. Chicken caesar salad (W), pasta (me) - and then we excelled ourselves when we both decided to have a dessert - Strawberry Eton Mess. It was so beautiful that I had to take a photograph to show you.
Back home again I find that today's sunshine has brought out the first of my roses. This one is a delight - I have no idea what it is called but I have had it in a pot for some years and every year it does well.
Let's hope for a few more days of this weather - we deserve it after a rather miserable May.
