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.
