Everything is packed and the house is empty, one last photograph of the house through the magnolia which will bloom in the next few days so I will sadly miss it. An exciting new adventure starts tonight but leaving a house is always sad. I haven't had any time to comment on any blogs, my apologies but I will be back doing so in a couple of days.
Asparagus is in the shops now, a true sign of spring. I bought a bunch this morning at the farmer's market. If you hold the asparagus and snap it has a natural break so no need to cut off the ends, then just steam it for three minutes and drizzled with oil, and sprinkle with sea salt - absolutely delicious!
I am finding it very hard to get inspiration at the moment due to my head being full of lists and packing and more lists. I thought today I would just take a picture of my bedroom window, it's such a dull day that I had to convert it to black and white!
It's just over two weeks till we move and I thought I should take some more pictures of the house before we leave it. We have some lovely old doors in the house, this one leads through into the dining room - you will probably recognise the window and the sofa from lots of my photographs.
I love yellow and green, they always remind me of spring, at this time of year you can see these colours in the garden with the daffodils and the green leaves of the sprouting tulips. When we lived in Sydney I painted our kitchen bright yellow and when the sun shone in it almost used to glow, sadly bright yellow wouldn't look quite the same in a house in England!
I have always loved books, I have so many in the house and am never without a book by my bedside. I believe the old adage that there are too many good books to waste on a bad one so if I don't like a book I will happily toss it aside half way through. Wherever you are I hope you get a chance to sit in a comfy chair with a good book tonight.
A bit of parsley to use in cooking over the weekend. This is also photograph number 182 of my 365 photographs, I am half way through the year! sometimes it has been hard to think of what to photograph each day but I have only missed one day so far and that was Christmas Day. If you are thinking about doing a 365 it is a great discipline and I really recommend it.
