It’s the fourth warmest winter on record here, I heard today. Daffodils are blooming throughout our neighborhood. My neighbor’s large tulip magnolia is unsure what it’s supposed to do–about a third of the blossoms opened before the temperatures dipped this week.
The weather in Europe has made the news here because of the awful cold. My British friend says they’re getting a surprising dose of winter weather in England.
Do you remember the Burns Night Supper post? The haggis and Scotch evening traditionally held on the occasion of the Scottish poet Robert Burns’ January 25 birthday? I had been so interested in it and asked so many questions that my friend shared some photos of the evening.
The setting in her “15th century straw house” looks just as lovely as I’d imagined.
I thought this menu was especially clever:
I’d take a Spoiler, but leave out the Scotch. Then again, were I eating haggis, I might need the Scotch.
Since I’d also been curious as to what her guests would wear on such an occasion, she obliged by sending these photos, also.
She did say, however, that some just don’t have the figure for kilts. I agree!
