The rays of warm, late afternoon sunlight, that were diffused through the kitchen window rideaux, made the spoonful of apricot jam sparkle. Smearing jam and cream onto egg yellow sponge was the final act of this afternoon’s baking. The colours were right. Earlier I had walked the lanes to see the season. Although the hedges are laden with rich green foliage, the overall palette is slowly sliding towards ochres and russets, which soft colours are becoming evident on the edges of leaves, like the contrasting trim on a Chanel blazer.
