    Oh my – I am SO jealous.

    Planted my crowns out a couple of weeks ago (I know, I know, I’m behind with the blog update!), so that pic will be mine in about 3 years time…

    Mouthwatering. I too am jealous. One day…

    Oh wow, is that yours Nic? Congratulations, it looks fantastic. We started a small asparagus bed last year, but I think it’s going to take a couple of years yet before we get anything we can eat.

    Where’s the Hollendaise sauce?

    Hi Nic, nothing arouses so much pleasure and pride as the first asparagus spears! We have had a few these past week or so too.
    Have a lovely Easter.

    Lucky lucky you. I won’t show this photograph to my husband, he will be soooo jealous.

    Jane – me too, this beauty belongs to my neighbour (or belonged as being the first spear I’m sure it was scoffed long ago). His asparagus bed is the envy of the plot

    Janet – my sentiments exactly, one day. And if I’d acted on that when I first thought it I’d have a beautifully established bed by now!

    Choc – at least a couple of years I read and while it’s tempting to pick the spears that form in the early years it’s worth resisting for the good of future harvests apparently

    Tom – mmm, or deliciously soft boiled egg for dipping

    Peggy – and now I am jealous – I may have a nice picture but you have real spears. Enjoy x

    MC – I see an asparagus post coming up to set the record straight!

Weekly reflections on #myheartylife - feeling thankful for passed on sewing skills, practicing self-care and finding beauty in learning to ride a bike.  More on the blog, link in bio.  Thanks for reading x

#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #easypeasylemoncake Fondly thinking of my Nan as I mix up the lemon cake batter with L.  When I baked with her as a child we sometimes used a wooden spoon for mixing but I was in awe of the hand held whisk with the handle that seemed so miraculous.  I love that @oxouk have a modern day version for mornings when our slow pace doesn't want to be interrupted by the whirr of machinery #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #bakingwithkids #childhoodunplugged #slowsaturdays #lovedungarees Trying to decide whether to make lemon cake or these beetroot and chocolate muffins.  I guess the boys will determine that as I've all the ingredients for one but not the other! Love having an on-line cookbook to browse through in my blog.  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #beetrootandchocolatemuffins #bakingwithkids #flashbackfriday here you go @cathy.heller my 2.5 year old self saying Hi to your 6 year old self!  My love of gardening must have started at a young age.  I'm pleased to say I get most of the water on the plants these days! 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #throwbackphotos #gardeningwithkids #70skid Writing clears my head. I write the words it's too scary to mutter.  Sharing the words is scary too but in the sharing comes the feeling of being less alone in it.  I dumped these words in a blog post 3 years ago.  Time to let them fly and find someone who might be having a hard time today. Link to "how it feels sometimes parenting a 3 year old" in bio.  Much love x #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #parentingistough #writingastherapy #newblogpost #gentleparenting Thanks Anna @imaginationtree for this brilliant toddler activity idea.  23 month old Luca filling up muffin tins with balls using our fab easygrip @oxouk tongs #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #thelennyagency Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey -  Alice White & George Shilling in action a few hours ago for session 6 of #spacesgloucester  @gloucestercathedral #nationallotteryfunded Luca and I discovered the most amazing place in town today.  A beautiful craft space where you pay £4 to make anything from beautiful beaded canvases to painted ornaments to mosaic door signs.  What a peaceful way to spend an hour making a canvas for the boys.  Luca helped too, mostly by bimbling about picking up pots of beads and letters. If you're in Gloucester you must check out @kftreasureseekers .  Open daily including Saturdays and available for parties.  We'll definitely be back!
