As March winds sweep the snow away and April showers stir the first seedlings, the latest issue of LandScape heralds the gradual transition from winter to spring. From the early scents and hues of a blossoming riverside plot to the pleasure of displaying pots brimful of daffodils, there is every reason to enjoy the garden once more.
However, the chance of being caught out by a chilly blast remains, so we serve up a filling feast of tasty bread-based recipes for seasonal suppers. There is also traditional fare from the kitchens of Wales, and the sweet delight of marzipan-wrapped Battenberg cake with its checkerboard centre.
The beauty of nature is captured in flame-scorched metalwork, and the natural shades of willow woven into sturdy baskets. A narrowboat is meticulously restored to create a water-borne home where every bit of space is utilised. And a walk in an other-worldly wood reveals contorted trees and a carpet of velvety boulders.
