Dark chocolate mousse, covered with a very thin, crisp layer of chocolate and crushed hazelnut praline. Green glass bowl circa 1960. First chocolate mousse I've made in years, forgotten how much I like it. Details @obsmagazine

Scrolling through last year's photographs I came across this one of a favourite tree in Japan. My trip this year was two months earlier than usual so the buds were still tightly closed.

After the Storm, Howard Hodgkin 2002 (detail). Saddened to hear the news of the death of Sir Howard Hodgkin. His paintings are one of the great joys of my life. One brushstroke and you just know it could only be #howardhodgkin

Winter's morning. A flock of white hellebores under the Cornus kousa. Since Dan Pearson @coyotewillow put these in a few years ago they have quietly spread throughout the garden. White, ivory, cream. And here and there a few with maroon freckles.

All is calm, all is bright. Just the muffled crunch of my footsteps in the snow on my way to the little wooden coffee house. #Kurokawa

Coffee, tea? Help yourself. Better than finding a coffee maker in your room.

Much as I love the formal Japanese gardens, when they are left almost wild, as at Kurokawa, they have a different charm. There is a hint of fairy tale to them. #japan

A break in the countryside. Ryokan rooms vary enormously in size. Mostly, they have to remove the low table after dinner and unroll gorgeous, thick futons with cloud-like duvets but this time my room is in two halves. A sleeping half and another for eating. My room is named after the moon. #kurokawaonsen #japan
