G/good Friday


It is a good friday. Back home. 


Eating a lunch of herbed chicken, salad of lettuce, feta, peas, mint and chive, with soft, garlicky flat breads 


and later, my mother's amazing sachertorte with strawberries and raspberries, all in the garden in glorious sunshine. Chilled Prosecco. Good times with my family.







The tulips and alliums are flowering their hearts out and the hammock is going up for the first time this year. I see a little snooze in my near future.


But it is also, of course, Good Friday. For me, Easter symbolizes the most powerful, sacred miracle of all. Whatever Easter means to you, I wish you a wonderful holiday weekend.

  2. Gorgeous photos. I love the barn, and the food looks jolly good too. Norfolk has a lot to recommend it.

  4. Dear Belinda,

    Your house looks great! I enjoyed scrolling through the pictures. And that hammock...I am looking for one just like that for in my garden.

    The salad sound delicious. I just wrote the ingredients down.

    Wish you and your family a Happy Easter.

    Lieve groet, Madelief x

  13. Belinda, your house is gorgeous and what an incredible shaped door.
    I also admire the fact that you can climb into a hammock for a snooze....I tried it once and promptly fell straight out!
    Have a lovely Easter with your family....

  20. Your home is just gorgeous. I wish I lived nearby and could avail myself of some of those fabulous flowers. I love your jewellery too such plain and simple design. I am now a follower, and am so glad that you popped in to visit me, love Linda x

  21. Pomona, welcome to Wild Acre, so glad you dropped by!

    Katie, thanks, we wish we knew the history of the door, there was an ancient, rotting one there when we arrived which we eventually had to replace with the one you see. It is a fab shape but soooo heavy!

    Girl Sprout, the thin layer of apricot jam makes it!

    Karen, I agree, those skies take some beating!

    Jan, yep we had to bow to Farrow and Ball - tried to do it on the cheap and it looked mint green, so we gave up and recoated in Castle Grey. Grr!

    Flowers on my Table, how lovely you popped by and enjoyed what you say, I'm so pleased!

  22. I have to tell you Belinda that I'm seriously coveting your door! Is it painted with a Farrow & Ball colour?

    If I had a hammock in the garden I would most definitely get no work done! Lovely pics.
