Spring is officially here and despite the lack of sun today, isn't this spring blossom such a treat?
This tree belongs to my neighbour, Tracey - sorry sweetie, but you weren't home! Her kitchen looks out to it and it is looking beautiful.
I can remember as a young girl being driven to swimming coaching, sitting in the car and being so excited by the spring blossom. It meant daffodils and that it wouldn't be long before I saw tulips in the passing gardens. I loved watching the series of change in those gardens.
On another note, as I'm sure you know, Grace Bonney from Design*Sponge has released her first book, Design*Sponge at Home.
You just know this is going to be great. Louise over at Table Tonic has done a great review of it over on her blog, here. I have preordered my copy over at The Book Depository. At 15 squids, that's around 30 New Zealand
Can I also skite that we are lunching with the All Blacks tomorrow? Do you think I'll be seated next to Dan Carter?
No, neither do I.
I hope you all have a very happy weekend x.
