springtime colour

After a rather long Winter with short days and cold weather, the burst of vibrant Spring colours finally took over! Here are a couple of pictures from a recent visit to rapeseed fields that will hopefully brighten the home, body and spirit.

If you happen to be in Hemel Hempstead or Berkhamstead area, you must visit the Three Horseshoes. It is a charming English pub that's tucked away down a narrow lane and offers tranquil al fresco dining next to the Grand Union canal. The most important thing is their food has never failed to impress every time we have been there. One of the best Sunday roasts I have had for a while and they even have Japanese Kirin beer on tap!
