My copy of Oh Comely was in the postbox Monday morning. It was the perfect start to the week.
I discovered the magazine at Aberdeen Airport this January. It felt so lighthearted and carefree, and I pored over each page on the flight home.
When Rosanna wrote they wanted holiday photos for Issue Five, I sent this snapshot of my mother, aged 18, on a trip to the Taj Mahal. Isn't she quite lovely?
S & I are down with a nasty cold at the moment. S is napping; I'm paging through Oh Comely's feature on porridges of the world. As Friday afternoons go, it's not bad.
Frühlingsfest at Domäne Dahlem this Saturday & Sunday! You know the drill by now? Wholesome family fun on an organic farm with a craft market and treats. This weekend's special dish is the Schlachtplatte (or "slaughter plate") featuring pork belly and sausages. Domäne Dahlem, Königin-Luise-Straße 49, Berlin-Dahlem (map). Open 10am-6pm.
The Grüne Liga's herb walks (Kräuterwanderungen) led by Elisabeth Westphal will kick off this April. I went a couple of years ago and can't remember what I enjoyed more, the cherry blossoms or the linden leaves. Elisabeth Westphal is an able and competent guide so if you've ever been curious about forraging for food (the forest as your grocery store!) you should definitely sign up.
And this just in! Pomeranza Design Ranch (of Grubentücher fame) is celebrating their birthday with free horse-drawn carriage rides through Prenzlauer Berg tomorrow from 11am-3pm. Pomeranza Design Ranch, Raumerstraße 19, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg (map)
