March will soon be over and April approaches, and with it our glorious summer months start cooling down a little. I have noticed a gentle subtle change in the big tree outside my front patio, a peek of a yellow leaf here and there.
And the sun has moved across a little, it cast these gorgeous sunbeams through the trees.
And along with the autumn days creeping in, I have an amazing eyeful of my lemon tree outside my back door. It has an absolute abundance of fruit, bright green gorgeous lemons which are, I have been told, 'restaurant quality'. They are thin skinned and wonderfully juicy.
This lemon season, I must attempt to make Lemon Curd. I saw Anna Olson making a bowlful in her cooking programme recently and it looked fairly easy. Then she swirled some through a tub of ice cream to make Lemon Ripple Ice Cream, well ...
it was simply to-die-for beautiful.
During April and May, we have a dazzling display of wild Cosmos, swathes of pink and lilac and maroon and white, that line the roads and grow in the fields alongside. On the main route to our popular tourist destinations to the north and east of the country especially, it is quite a common site to see cars stopped on the side of the road, folk out with their cameras, taking pics of acres of flowers, or simply just drinking the gorgeousness in with the eyes!
I have been browsing through some of my favourite UK blogger friends' posts this morning ... what a sight to behold ... the blooms and blossoms, crocus and daffodils, cherry blossoms and snowdrops popping up in the fields and pathways .... I must plan a visit in the Spring next time I travel across.
It is a public 'bank' holiday here in South Africa today ... do have a wonderful day, and to all
a wonderful weekend.
Hugs Pat xx
