Chill Spring Days

We are outdoors a lot this week. It's bitterly cold (often) but with some warmth in the full sun that finds its way through to us, under those still-alluring glimpses of blue sky. The girls shed their coats at the earliest opportunity. I seem to spend a lot of time collecting and attempting to replace discarded knitwear. The wool vests are about as good as it gets in the quest to keep them wrapped up!

Yesterday they ate all of their meals out of doors. I kept a flask of chamomile tea topped up and toasty (must knit a cozy for it though, as the stainless steel gets pretty hot!) and provided a steady stream of warming food (pesto pasta, boiled eggs, fruit cake, and a bento box of salad vegetables and cooked chicken).

The outside is reflected indoors - our Season Table hasn't yet decided whether spring has truly sprung or not!
