At last the warmth of spring has hit my home town Brighton. My youngest daughter and I have walked round to the wonderful grocer’s Shop Taj on Western Road – Or Taj Mahal International Foods – to give it is full grander title! It is a place filled with the scent of foods and spices of the world.. Wonderful fresh produce invites you in from the streets and every shelf if filled with new and inviting ingredients to add a little zing to your food!
After browsing amongst the goodies for what seemed hours we picked what we thought were the most beautiful, veggies. Their vibrancy and colour make me think if the local countryside and taking our shopping home brought a little bit of its beauty into the home.
Next on our list of spring things to do is fruit and veggie picking as soon as Round Stone Farm (my favourite) is open for the season.
Another way I have bought the new season into my home is by buying some natural lavender laundry spray, which I spritz onto my linens as i iron them. The smell fills my bedroom and reminds me winter is over.
