breakfast on table outside

A sure sign of the spring arriving here is whether or not we can have breakfast outside.   Last weekend it was possible at last and I savored every minute of it.

Why do we love to eat outside so much?  Is it just a need for natural light, the touch of the sun on our shoulders, the  sound of the birdsong, the breeze in the trees, or simply the fact that I can multitask on garden planning while sipping coffee?!

I’d also say that civilised breakfasts are one of the perks of being empty nesters.    During the week I work very long hours here, and I savor the weekend and being able to take longer on my start to the day.   Reading the papers, having a longer breakfast or even a brunch, is really something that my husband and I have rediscovered since we have the place to ourselves.

Added to this that breakfast is without doubt my favourite meal of the day, and that the wisteria is beginning to come into flower, I am already impatient for tomorrow morning!    And how about you, what is your favourite way to breakfast?   Al fresco or in front of a fire?

Have a lovely weekend, hope the sun shines and you get some time to relax wherever you are
