I have commissioned my better half to create a nice header image from our photos, as he is more artistically inclined than I am (remember the Blackadder quote about the cluster of colourblind hedgehogs. In a bag? Well, that would be a compliment for me). In the meantime I picked something easily identifiable although unseasonal – almond blossom, from two trees we have in tubs kindly given to us by a friend who had “too many almond trees”. As it turns out the variety is not that great to eat, but it is edible and the flowers are beautiful.
