    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!

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
