Happy that February is over? Do you feel a hint of spring in the air yet? I saw my first daffodils earlier this week, and was able to shed the gloves during one of my morning walks. True, it’s just as freezing and blustry again today, but it’s so gloriously sunny that I am convinced that winter is having its last fling.

DSCN1531So, in the belief that spring is on its way, the theme for this month’s Biscuit Barrel is:

Herbs and Flowers

Let’s start thinking about gardens coming to life, the world in flower, Easter, and all the  joys that come with the arrival of warm weather.

DSC_1331Any item, sweet or savoury, that can fit into a biscuit container qualifies for the challenge, so think creatively!
