Good friends and family came to stay so that they could go to watch the England v Italy rugby match in Rome last Sunday; the weather for the time they were all here was forecast to be wet, wet and more wet but it wasn’t quite as bad as that; we had some warm sunshine at times but also a 15 minute hail storm on Monday. Sunday afternoon was mild and although grey, it didn’t rain so that the match was enjoyed (and the victory savoured). Not being a fan myself I went with a friend to Rome and instead of rugby enjoyed the Capitoline museum.
In the garden the (mostly) mild temperatures and rain means that spring bulbs are growing and flowering.
I can’t say I really enjoyed the hail but I’m grateful that nothing seems to be damaged.
An update on Monday’s vase (actually picked last Thursday) and a second vase of more tulips in the kitchen.
So despite the hail, plenty to keep me smiling including being able to pick vegetables from the garden for our guests.
It was delicious cooked in the oven and then topped with a little Gorgonzola cheese and walnuts.
I hope you are finding things to enjoy in your own gardens this week; do let us know so that we can share your enjoyment. That’s half the fun, isn’t it?
