One Good Thing

Confession. Not a great lover of Winter. Spring and Summer are my friends. But of course I try to remain positive and think of all the good things Winter brings us. I am sure there are many and maybe you could let me know what they are? Meantime, this is one good reason for me. My coriander grows like wild fire! Here is a bunch I picked from my garden yesterday.

  1. What about cosiness? It's not so easy to get cosy in the heat of summer. Your coriander looks so fresh!

  5. I love cilantro! I have such a hard time keeping it going in windowsill pots-- that's great that you have it running rampant :)

    Here is one of my favorite uses of it: (just made it last night and everyone loved it)

  6. Get caught up in my southern USA world and forget that others are having winter in July! Your coriander looks beautiful! Makes me want to make up some guacamole...

  7. MY Birthday!! That is something good winter brings. I do love the cooler weather though but Autumn is probably my favourite season which coincides nicely with Easter...hmmm I sense a trend here.
    The other wonderful thing about Winter is Strawberries!!! I love strawberries!!
    Birthday Strawberries and champagne! Nothing nicer.
    Have a truly scrumptious winter day,

  8. Winter,,I am able to walk on the beach after a storm and pick up treasures brought in by the wild sea,go for a walk without melting.
    Sleep soundly at night without waking tired and drained, being able to dig in the garden without a hat and being able to get the fork into the soil, watching my garden look fresh and come alive. I could go on and on as I love winter. I must add though, as I'm getting older it is becoming harder and harder to get out of bed without creaking.ha ha soooo Maybe just maybe I'm beginning to like spring and autumn better xx

  11. I am so jealous as my taste buds refuse to like coriander - so disappointing because it is in everything these days. I bet your's would be delicious, (sigh)if only! :)

  13. It looks ultra fresh and ultra delicious! Not loving winter down here in Sydney either especially today with wild winds from the south.

  14. I love the skiing, warm fire places and beautiful food that Winter brings. But other than that, I'm with you. It's a season to be got through in my opinion. Our houses are not set up for it so I am always cold.

    That corriander looks great by the way and it is all about seeing the beauty of everything around us, so good on you!!!!

  15. I'm no fan of winter either. I've just returned to Brisbane from 3 months of hot weather in China, and having a bit of a hard time adjusting! Bring on springtime ..... :-)

  18. ummm, I love cilantro. I also prefer warm seasons. I can manage a couple of winter months if snow is involved.

  19. I thought winter in Brisbane was really nice as it never gets that cold for too long? But I agree Spring and Summer and mid-Autumn are glorious! Looks like you had a wonderful trip! :-)x

  20. Looks delicious and so fresh! Oh hot chocolates would have to be a must in winter! xx

  21. I love chopping fresh coriander from the garden! Yum! My basil is loving the weather too! We are so lucky.... still growing herbs in winter! X

    ReplyDelete
  22. Coriander is among the greatest of all herbs! Not forgetting lavender, basil and mint of course...

    Oh and sage!

    :) x

  23. Isn't coriander so much better from the garden than the grocery store?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Winter doesn't sound so bad when you can still pick things from your garden! Winter in Canada is a much different thing! I've always loved summer but in Dubai, I can't wait for winter so things will cool down :)

  25. Hello
    I went to see the cool stuff on your corner in the smell and give you a friend.

    a hug

  26. That looks great. Our garden dies off in the winter, so at least you are still getting fresh goodness.
    I like winter because it is not hot andthings are a little slower.

  27. Oh my! I live in Montreal, Canada and was just thinking yesterday how MUCH I LOVE summer and how I die when the plants die and our summers are extremely short (if we're lucky 3 months and the rest is very cold and snowy). I wish I could live where coriander grows in winter!! Maybe that is something "good" about winter there. Not everything is dead and buried under the snow :( and I love your blog

  28. Looks so healthy & delicious! I just put some in a corn & black bean salad...but I had to buy mine at the grocery store!
