a fine weekend

May 25, 2010

. . . . . .

like any good weekend, this past one included lots of good food shared with good people. the bonus was that we were able to eat outdoors.  the highlights were lunch in the back garden at violet with winnie and dinner in a garden in north london on saturday night with some new friends (where we ate perfect asparagus dipped into thick homemade mayonnaise … mmmm). 

 i also had plenty of chances to pull on a pair of shorts this weekend.  i really, really like london when the weather is this nice.

    Brian, all the images are wonderful.
    Full of life and vivid colors.
    The scenery, people, things and food looks great.
    Beautiful weekend!

    I’ve been waiting for your weather to turn so we could see pictures like this. Nice clicks, B.

    this post feels like summer – great photos

    i often wish you would host a photography workshop, or something similar
    you’ve got a unique & classy style.
    i feel like many people (including myself) would pay top dollar to rub shoulders with such talent

    I just keep scrolling back and forth. Those photos are ridiculous, Brian.

    Glad it was such a good, summery weekend!

    What is better than a dusk dinner in a newly green garden?

    I am serving grilled asparagus at a dinner tonight and I love the idea of dressing it up with a little homemade mayo. Thanks for the visual and culinary inspiration.

    I didn’t realise that violet had opened a shop. If I hadn’t just made picnic plans for Saturday I would be heading straight there…

    eating al fresco with friends – it doesn’t get much better than that, does it? wonderful.

    I’m not sure how I stumbled over here & found your blog on a long train of pick-and-choose links: but I love your photos. :)
