Spring!

P4210002

Spring is truly here now - the Japanese Cherry trees in Kungstradgarden are in bloom. So pink, so pretty.

And tonight is Walpurgis night, a much loved tradition in Sweden. We light huge bonfires, and celebrate the coming of spring. (Unfortunately, it's also a very popular night for teenagers to try alcohol for the first time, and get mindnumbingly drunk.) We have invited some friends for dinner, and will probably be cooking on the barbecue. I've made a Chocolate Truffle Cake for dessert - yum!

Happy spring, everyone!

Kungsträdgården looks amazing with all the cherry trees.

We're looking forward for the dinner tonight. The cake is one of F's favourites so he's very happy :-)

That truffle cake is how I first came to read your blog about 1 1/2 years ago! It's awesome, and the most unusual recipe! Thanks for all the awesome, and continued inspiration!

The negative of living in California is we don't have any big clue spring is here. Hell we only know winter because it rains for a week :/

But there are worse problems to have I guess. At least I'll never have to shovel another driveway here :)

Hey - great minds thing alike! I'm making a flourless chocolate cake for friends coming round this Saturday! And I *love* those cherry blossoms. The tree in our garden (which I think is also a kind of ornamental cherry) is past its best now, but for the past 2 weeks or so it has totally filled my bedroom view with its heavy white blossoms. Bliss!
