It's raining!

Easter seems to mark the boundary between summer and winter - we don't really have autumn here in Perth. Definitely no wonderful show of leaf colour.

Yesterday was hot (34.3 Celsius). We had a family lunch outside and almost considered bringing out a couple of electric fans to stir the air.

Today it is raining - a nice gentle dripping that will do the garden a great deal of good. It is still quite warm though.

Lunch yesterday was a major production. Graham brought his speciality of ceviche and I made hors d'oeuvres of cream cheese, capers and smoked salmon garnished with dill. As well there was crayfish (Western rock lobster - a great special at a local supermarket) with homemade Mary Rose sauce. There is a recipe here. I don't use whisky in mine though.

Later there was ham and turkey and spiced lamb riblets with beetroot salad, chickpea salad, egg and potato salad and a tossed green salad plus freshly baked Turkish bread. No-one wanted dessert - strange, that.

And I forgot to take any photos of the feast.
