Spring has finally sprung!

Pretending to have dinner in a greek taverna, with a recipe from the cookbook Greek Islands by Rebecca Seal.
Simple and fresh summer food always brings back good memories. As long as we can't travel, we can cook and fill the kitchen with delicious scents that evoke a feeling of travel...
Tonight we traveled back to 2010 when we went with Minne & Pippa to Crete, one of the many Greek Islands we've visited over the past 35 years.
The islands we've been to in random order; Mykonos, Milos, Naxos, Paros, Kos, Crete, Skiathos, Skopelos, Santorini and Rhodes.
Let's toast to the day that we are sitting on a bright blue chair at a tavern by the sea again.

An allotment garden, it means more than just a plot of land for gardening in the city.
A lovely place to go, for those who don't have a garden of their own.
On our evening walk last Friday, we walked across an allotment complex.
At this time of year, not so many vegetables, plants and flowers yet, but the variety of self-built wooden houses and greenhouses is adorable.
Nice and messy, pure and casual. A wonderful and inspiring place to linger and take pictures, albeit with my iPhone.
The caretaker of the complex told us, the waiting list is about 2 years because many people would like an allotment garden these days.

The ongoing trend of the knitted spencer!
A perfect piece in your wardrobe, diagonal stripes, horizontal stripes, checkered or unicolor.
Actually you can let your imagination run wild with this basic spencer pattern.
These are the two diagonally striped spencers that I recently knitted. The first one I made it with yarn leftovers in size S and the second one I knitted with pink tweedyarn in size M.
The spencer trend will continue this summer, it truly is a stylish item. You can simply mix it with anything. Mix, don't match. Everything is possible.
Everyone needs a spencer in their wardrobe! You can download the knitted spencer pattern in my Etsy shop. Available in size S and M and in English and Dutch version. It's easier than you think.

Wednesday 12th of May - 3rd day on the beach 2021
According to the weather forecast today would be a sunny day in between the so-so days with lots of rain.
Last night we decided to have a picnic on the beach.
We left after breakfast and the closer we got to the coast, the bluer the sky...
And it was lovely on the beach, especially in the shelter of the beach cabins.
So 'seize the day' turned out very well today.
