Doesn't it make everything feel good? The last week we've been basking in the unexpectedly glorious weather. And I haven't even started sneezing and snuffling in earnest yet, so I've been outside enjoying it!
We pressure washed the garden furniture and got some oilcloth for the tabletop, so al fresco dining is in full swing. In the face of some exceptionally lurid choices, I went for the restrained oilcloth option. We're attempting class in the garden.
And what could be better to nibble outside, than a slice of Lemon and Thyme loaf? It tastes like sunshine.
The recipe is from 'Cake Days' - the new Hummingbird Bakery book (my Mothers Day present). It is drenched in a tangy syrup made with lemons and lemon thyme and is sublime. And a great preventer of scurvy - go on - feel the health benefits!
