Weekend mornings I usually stay in bed longer and have a slow start to my day.
The coffee creme tasted so delicious that I savoured a second bowl before sitting down and opening up my lap top.
Have you heard of this award winning olive oil from the Marlborough area of New Zealand?
Lusatori is owned by our daughter's fiancee's family.
When they visited we were given a bottle and it is truly amazing!
I made a quick aioli that Dani BP mentioned in a recent comment on my blog.
I have a great easy sauce that my friend Pat gave me last week too, a fake aioli: 1 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup lemon juice, tsp of yogurt and tsp of mayo with fresh herbs thrown in and lots of pepper and a bit of salt, perfect on cold roast chicken and asparagus. Perfect this time of year.
Thank you Dani as it was delicious!
I served it with freshly picked asparagus grown in The Humble Bungalow garden and a store bought roasted chicken and deli salads.
We have been enjoying the Sunshine and Yellow flowers.
Darling daughter wore her citrine and diamond ring when we went out for lunch.
We ate outside in the "secret garden"behind Sally Bun on Fort Street.
They offer healthy food and make fabulous salads.
I am not a huge fan of gnomes but this one was tucked away into the foliage in such a way that it did not scare me!

The canopy of trees makes this spot an intimate place for a quiet respite.
Our hydrangeas are starting to bloom.
The poppies are finished and I am gathering the seed pods to dry until next Spring when I will scatter them about the beds for more plants.
A pale yellow rose whose name remains unknown.
Something has been munching on the leaves and there appears to be a bit of blackspot on this plant.

I marvel at the speed with which time flies.
