We are all suffering the effects of the ash cloud and if you are stuck somewhere and have had your life upended, our thoughts are with you! But if you are on the other end, its hard to be down about it on a day like today. Blue skies, warm sun, flowers bursting out from every branch...and the slow pace. The empty streets, the silence and the peace. I think in a way it's been nice to slow down for a few days and to literally, stop and smell the roses.
So this afternoon, I came home and sat in the garden, had a cup of tea and a truly amazing sweet-tart lemon bar. Really, as close to tasting spring as you can get. The flavour bursts with sunshine and when there is nothing else to do but wait, can you ask for more?
