Almond blossom

Weather has been very much on my mind. The first almond blossom is a marvellous moment promising that spring is just around the corner. Before spring had actually sprung in Melbourne I had a few days in Noosa, anticipating sunshine, walks in the national park, and lazy lunches. Well there was one day like that and then the sky went black and the rains came, and stayed. There was 7 inches of rain in a few days and it was cold! We even had a fire. Still time for some lovely lunches. The linguine with spanner crab and the passionfruit roulade with Turkish delight icecream that I had at Pitchfork Restaurant at Peregian were both quite wonderful.
