Sunshine and deliciously warm temperatures jump-started Spring. Everyone was out enjoying the fine weather here in New England.  It was
strange to experience the summer-like temps while seeing the bare trees. The forsythia and daffodils were like dollops of bright yellow in the brown landscape.  And the beautiful pink haze of the weeping cherry. Hibernation is over.  Enjoy the weekend.  

All the yellow in the landscape inspired me to make this yummy lemon tart - with a cup of tea - and     the happy tea cosy - I am content.

Love the mezzaluna - first saw Nigella Lawson use this gadget - my favorite kitchen tool - fun and efficient.

Ciao for now.

PS I struggled with loading the pictures in the post for much more time than I will admit - adding, wrong order, tried to correct, whoops - all gone - how? sputtering words of frustration - kept trying to get it right - too much time on a nice day - so the pictures will be out of order.

Lots of "yellow" seems to be showing up as an "IN" color. I have always thought that a bowl full of lemons added so much to a room.
Pure zest! That pie looks amazing and I do love a spot of tea in the afternoon.

little byrd - it was delish - and really not too hard just takes a little time.
