An Easter Treat!

Looking out of the window right now the sky is a beautiful array of golds, blues, apricots, oranges and pinks. It's truly a Summer sunset! Feels almost as if we've skipped over Spring for a sneak preview of Summer such has been the weather these past days. The hills are a pattern of layers in the evening twilight and it certainly inspires the new seasons minis as we move forward through the year! It hardly seems the blink of an eye since we were showcasing our Festive miniatures and now, here we are, drinking in the clear Island air of warm sunny days!

Of course, Summer is, as yet, just an illusion provided by the weather and we aren't yet past Easter & we have all the fun that brings to enjoy! Here's a British Easter tradition that no Good Friday would be without, Hot Cross Buns! A spiced baked delight, the smell of which just simply says....Easter!!!

Spring Has Sprung!

Here we are then. Winter is now officially behind us & no looking back as we hurtle into Spring! The first daisy appeared in the garden today and the world is being blanketed in a carpet of green again! It's like someone's taken their paintbrush out &, taking a tired old season, is painting a new one before our very eyes! Even the waterfall cascading down to the loch looks as if it's washing away the last of Winter to herald the arrival of all the wonderful joys that abound in Springtime!

Spring is, of course, a time of renewal & a time for bright colours! This juicy fruitbox now for sale in our CDHM Gallery is the epitome of the new season & it's a perfect way to welcome in the lighter nights and warmer days! There's also a picture of something chocolatey that's recently found a new home that we just wanted to share with you!
