Purple Crocus 2016

The crocus’ always look so delicate and fragile but they survive extreme frosts without a mark.  They are a lot stronger than they look!  They are one of my favourite signs that Spring is on its way.  

Shortbread and Coffee

I rolled this shortbread into a cylinder, chilled in the fridge, then sliced it into thick round biscuits.  Lovely with a strong hot coffee in my dainty Portmeirion cup and saucer.
