What a difference some sunshine makes!

We have had two weeks of glorious sunshine and the garden has come on in leaps and bounds.  Today I picked our first rhubarb and cooked it up. What I do is cut it into chunks, wash it, add some orange juice and honey to the pan and simmer til soft.  I think this was a Jamie Oliver idea,but anyhow it is delicious cooked like this.  I am making rhubarb crumble tonight.  Nothing like eating it fresh.

Also our purple sprouting broccoli has started sprouting.  Two weeks ago it was just leaves, now it has spears.  I picked some for dinner tonight.

In the front garden the daffs have died off and now it is the turn of the tulips and anemones.
