What's seasonal in April?

Oh London can be such a tease.

Two weeks ago it was gorgeously sunny every day of the week, hitting up to 15°C. Then last week, in true British fashion, the sky was grey almost every day and the cold winds crept back in, chilling me down to the bone. The thick blankets came back out on the bed and the casseroles were back on the menu.

Today is April Fool's Day, and London is treating me to gorgeous blue skies and 16°C weather. The weather forecast says it will be 16°C again tomorrow, and 18°C on Friday. But I know that this is just a tease again for the rain and cold weather sneaking up on the weekend.

Early April in London is not to be trusted! Nonetheless, I am enjoying this sunshine while I can and appreciating the appearance of some favourites this month such as new potatoes, peas and lamb, just in time for Easter.
