A good start to a weekend of family all in one place, books, baking from a new book, sewing, sun, rugby, and tulip-faffing.

How lovely! What a beautiful day already. I too have a new baking book to try, Lorraine Pascal's Baking made Easy. I watched her programme on BBC2 and loved it - can't wait to get in the kitchen and make some nice things for afternoon tea today.

That's just brightened my evening- love those yellows and purples together!

Love, love, love all your tulip- faffing!!

Oh, I love those colors! The purple! The yellow! Both together! Beautiful.
Enjoy your weekend. :)

Photographed against the grey "stones" the tulips just sing a Spring song. It is wet and cool in VA so that our flowering bulbs and trees have that glorious spacious time extension.

I especially love your pictures of fresh spring flowers and fresh produce at the market. When I look outdoors and still see a few feet of snow your blog reassures me that spring is on it's way. Our spring, when it comes, is so short and not very good for growing tulips.

Just had to buy more tulips today.
Do you replant bulbs from pots- or leave them in? The one's I left in are not as good as last year. Wondering if I should put them in the ground?

Just love the greeny yellow and the purply pink colour combination. Wonderful. Really interesting shaped tulips too.
I never used to like tulips - they always seemed too solid to me but now I really appreciate them in tubs and as cut flowers.

Seriously, are you secretly a Dutch tulip farmer-ess masquerading as a writer? I think I have a total of 12 tulips at most coming up in my yard and I was thrilled with those - until these last few posts! Now I am feeling quite the slacker...
