Who needs chocolate? ME!


As we draw closer to Easter I love to see the spring colours in the garden. They epitamize this time of year.

So, with beautiful signs of Spring who needs chocolate as well?

I do!

What is your favourite Spring flower and what is your favourite chocolate bar?

A Snickers bar has everything I like in one place. Tulips & Daffs in Spring steal the show.

Hyacinths. My father used to have one greenhouse full of these and people would choose the one/ones they liked. They would collect it/them to take along on Good Friday/Easter to the cemetery. Graves would be cleaned around this time and it was customary to meet up with friends/relatives one hadn't seen for a while. It was almost a social occasion!!

Other half thinks that this was a morbid tradition.

Didn't put me off Hyacinths. I can never forget the fragrance in that greenhouse.

Any chocolate with nuts!
