Weekly Photo Challenge – Lunchtime, Bees and Planting

17 Mar

1    Beautiful warm sunshine took us outside today and our first lunch in the garden this year – a simple one of sun-warmed tomatoes and home-made guacamole with melba toasts followed by sweet clementines.

    Yum lunch looks devine. Sorry I will be a little late…what with the time differences down under and all. 🙂 You have given me a new respect for daffodils they really are beautiful aren’t they?

    So jealous of your beautiful lunch outside, with green and flowers around you! Still waiting for one more snow storm in this part of the world for today…

    You lunch and the bees lunch both look beautiful…I know how Mr S feels about silver birches – I always plant at least one in every garden I’ve had!!!

    I can’t wait for it to warm up here too, so that we can enjoy some lunches outside. Love the daffodils.

    Your Spring is well in advance of ours here in Somerset. No sign of grape hyacinths here yet.

    A simple lunch most of the time is the best one! Enjoy the daffodils – no sign of flowering daffodils here!
