FIFTY SHADES OF WHITE
It's March. It shouldn't be Spring quite yet, but here in California it is, and fragrant white spring blossom is everywhere. Plum, pear, apple: I am in heaven — I hope East Coast readers aren't moved to tears with the memory of long-departed warm weather.
One of the pleasures of the run-up to spring is sorting out your linen closet - it's not a bad job! Channel Mrs Beeton and Martha Stewart and dream of cedar lined armoires and pretty ribbons, and the scent of lavender.
