Kinross House, Love & Lemons, Spring Updates and more on Weekend Meanderings.
Good Saturday morning friends, how are you?
Today I am joining Kim and Juliet for weekend meanderings, our weekly series of things that caught our eye and piqued our interest.
Tonight we spring ahead for daylight savings, and loose an hour of sleep but gain an hour of daylight. If Senator Marco Rubio has his way, it may be for the last time.
What do you think? Are you a fan of changing the clocks or do you think it is an antiquated idea? Did you know that Daylight saving time used to run from April to October? In 2005 it was extended four weeks from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November? I didn’t.
It’s been another crazy week for weather. I feel like that is “the” topic of conversation with friends and family across the country this month. One day it is cold, then it’s hot, then it’s raining, then snowing. March is a bit of a challenge, it is on the cusp of spring and there are days that we are teased into believing it is Spring only to find the next day that winter is back with a vengeance.
Perhaps that is Mother Nature telling us to be in the now and to savor each day and not wish away the days for something better. Spring will be here before we know it and then the hot humid days of summer will arrive and have me wishing for these cool, crazy days.
Ok, enough of my droning, on to weekend meanderings.
Love & Lemons
Are you a fan of Jeanines’ blog Love & Lemons? ME too. I have been following and making the recipes for years. Some of my favorites include veggie pizza, homemade brownies, broccoli salad and buffalo cauliflower tacos.
If you don’t know the blog or the cookbooks they are filled with easy and delicious vegetarian recipes. There is something for everyone, even if you are not a vegetarian I promise you will find something to enjoy.
Do you have a favorite Love & Lemon recipe?
It’s no secret that I LOVE Scotland. The first time I stepped off the plane I felt like I was home, that might sound strange but it is true. My dream for years was to move there when we retired and live in a cottage by a loch. Life had other plans.
Luckily I have visited several times and hopefully we be headed back there next year. In the meantime I enjoy “visiting” my favorite country via Instagram. This week I stopped mid scroll when I saw Kinross House.
This stunning estate looks like it came out of a romantic novel. The house is beautifully decorated and the grounds are immaculately kept and surrounded by over 100 acres of land overlooking a loch. There is even a private island!
You can rent the entire house for private events like weddings and such. If that is not in your budget, and it is not in mine, you can visit the Coach/House and Spa and spend the day being pampered. Then when you are finished, stay for afternoon tea or in the winter a cup of hot chocolate and a mince pie!
Make sure to visit the website to see the beautiful movie, and photos of the gardens and the house, it is stunning. The Head Gardener has a blog, although it is not up to date the older posts are stunning.

Caesar Salad Pizza sounds delicious!
Terrian has some beautiful things for Spring. This wildflower wreath reminds me of the one Juliet has on her front door. Colorful glasses are perfect for a pop of color on your Spring, summer and holiday table. These melamine plates are one of my favorites.
As I mentioned before I am trying to be very selective about the things I am adding to my closet and home. I don’t just want more stuff so for now I haven’t ordered anything. I am window shopping.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
On Monday Musings I shared a great movie I think you will enjoy! It’s called LOVE SARAH.It’s about a young woman who wants to fulfill her mother’s wishes for opening a bakery in Notting Hill. I also shared some spring finds a great books and lots more.
Wednesday I shared a recipe that has been in my family for years, an almond kringle aka a danish puff pastry. This easy and delicious pastry is perfect with tea, for brunch or even for dessert.
