Didn't think I had anything much in the garden to take to the host of a girls lunch recently..... but managed to find - dill, kaffir lime leaves, bay leaves, oranges, limes, lemons, celery, camellias, lemongrass and early cheer ! So along with eggs from our girls and sparkling grape juice from Heron's Flight Vineyard I felt pretty pleased with my basket of foodie offerings.

These are prunings from our almond tree - they are so pretty. I know I probably shouldn't cut them, but we have a guest convalescing quietly in Bella Vista Vineyard Cottage for a few days, and I think the whole look of spring is such a nice thing - especially when you're feeling poorly :-)

I love this - makes me smile every time :-). Matakana coffee meets such styley advertising. You should pop down to the village and try it next time you are staying at Bella Vista Vineyard Cottage — in Matakana.
