We found ourselves sitting on a newly varnished park bench
on a sunny but fresh spring afternoon noticing the first signs of life with
trees budding, insects buzzing and the flowers beginning to blossom. We opened
up our rucksack and ate some ginger nut biscuits, lemon meringue toffee and
crackers with sweet-tart gooseberry compote. With a drop of water it became a
little warmer and we took off our tweed jackets, opened our wicker picnic basket
and found apple fruit muffins and blueberry apple cupcakes which we enjoyed
with a zesty old fashioned bitter lemon and a ginger root beer.
Drinking tip: Late afternoon in the sun.
