glimpses

Every three or four days of heavy rains we see a glimpse of sun. 

And on that rare occasion I run in the garden to take a pic
of the white lavender plants. 
I have three of them one type is called "Arctic snow" and the
other one is called "Pretty Polly", they smell like lavender 
but with a accent of mint. I bought mine during a trip to
Norfolk, you can easily find them in any Lavender catalogue.
A couple of days ago I had a little party with my girlfriends, 
it was supposed to be a garden party instead we stayed in because it was raining buckets! (and still is)
I made some "tapas" following some recipes from Moro cookbooks 
and non alcoholic fruit cocktail, it was nice.

I made more tapas than the one showed there: queso manchego y membrillo, focaccia, bruschetta etc but the pictures weren't that good!

I have that ice-cube tray! I like to think one day I will make mini-jellies with it. Lovely photos.

Hello Lois, definitely a good idea, I was thinking of putting edibles flowers or berries + water and make cute ice cubes too.

It is strange about the rain, although I try not to think about it. However, there's no swimming, no enjoying the garden and my legs could easily be called 'arctic snow' as well.

As always, I like everything I see, especially the tapas (which I've never had). Maybe I just need the coockbook and a bit more imagination.

Your lavender looks amazing! Now I'm super curious about the Moro cookbooks. I'm kinda addicted to cookbooks, but I'm not familiar with Moro. Off to check it out.

Hello Camila, I' m so enthusiat about Moro cookbooks that I now have all of them. I love Moro East and Casa Moro especially. Thank you :-)

la casita said...

Ah Lilli, same here.Lavender duslike too wet feet, poor, every glimpse of sun is so so apreciate!
Do please try tapas, I love them since I was a kid, we made a lot at home and it was about sharing, chatting and make life a bit savoury and fun.

la casita said...

Oh Severine I bet you had the chance to savour the real thing lately ;-)
Iust try cucumber+water+ice sounds very refreshing...first we need a bit of warm weather though! Finger crossed the mild winter in summer is finally leaving us!
