1 Walking down to buy some chocolate (of which, more later) I passed a glorious Magnolia Stellata glowing in the afternoon sunshine.
2 Along the top of a neighbour’s Cornish hedge there is a mass of Primroses of various shades – just beautiful.
3 As it is April Fools’ Day tomorrow and we have our Grandchildren staying I decided to do something my Dad once did for us four kids. I blew four large eggs, saving the contents for a Frittata for lunch tomorrow, melted the milk chocolate I had been out to buy and very carefully filled the empty egg shells with chocolate. Tomorrow, when the rest of the family are cutting the tops off their boiled eggs with ease, those eggs will be very hard! They will, of course, be served so that the hole doesn’t show.
