The past weekend was an opportunity for us to slow down and recharge after the busy Christmas period. We started out slow, with pancakes and family time at home before setting out to discover a little nature in the local marshes en route to our favourite bookshop, “Books and Company” in Hellerup. I bought a new recipe book – Scandinavian Green by Trine Hahnemann, which I highly recommend to anybody looking for a beautiful, no-nonsense collection of wholesome, non-pretentious meals. Whilst in Hellerup we paid a quick visit to the sea to have a chilly winter dip in the ocean before heading home.
Sunday we spent at home, and in particular in our garden enjoying the gentle exertion of the various tasks which presented themselves around the greenhouse and flower beds. We installed a couple of bird feeders which have already attracted a much broader range of garden birds to the magnolia and apple trees outside our kitchen window.
