Spring is in my kitchen!!

I love the tiny daffodils called tete a tete  they are so pretty.
I always buy them round about now when I think that winter will never end. Although we haven't had snow  like some parts of the US we certainly have had rain.
But today it isn't raining and we have beautiful sunshine. The chutney is mango. The farm shop where we have been going for our fruit and vegetables had a box of 12 very cheap.. we were expecting some to be very over ripe but no, although some were soft, so DH has made chutney. We also had some in a fruit salad last evening and with yogurt for breakfast. Yummy, they have such a smooth taste.. so we were very pleased with our buy.

Come on spring, we're more than ready!!

I am so ready for spring too. The snow has been never ending here.
I have never tasted mango and now I want to. I am glad you got such a wonderful buy!

As I watch the snow fLL AGAIN, I'm ready for spring, too! I almost purchased a beautiful rich blue orchid yesterday - but it was so cold here I was afraid it would die before I could get it home.

Pretty daffodils to make us feel a bit brighter in this dull wet weather. I'd love to find a box of mangoes going cheap, mango chutney is my most successful make and usually gets eaten up quickly.

Love your daffs, Chris, and yes, I hope we do slip seamlessly into spring without getting a nasty surprise end to winter! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment!

Spring is in the air AND in your kitchen! I heard the birds singing in the tree outside my bedroom window yesterday but today is overcast. BOO!

Tete-a-tete daffodils are one of my favorite spring bulbs! I love their daintiness and that beautiful yellow color always makes me happy:)
Blessings, Aimee
