in a sliver of sunlight I spied a small patch of snowdrops under a rhodo
they looked so pretty and dainty
and with only a few clumps I considered carefully but
I could not resist picking a few
to bring indoors.
One of my dreams
is to have a garden that has masses upon masses
I plant them whenever I see them offered for sale
but they are difficult to find here
I am a victim of garden envy
and my envy is a vivid shade of green
love to share
and often are secretive
and will not share their sources
some even resort to stealing...
remember hearing about
The Orchid Thief
and later reading the book.
Driving on a shaded street nearby
I spied a profusion
of white wee poppets
the boulevards were overflowing
littered with the tiny white drooping heads
what a sight!
green and greedy
my gardener's envy
reared it's ugly head...
I remarked to my mother
that I might come back at midnight and dig up some of them
they have so many would they miss just a few?
I would never actually do this
but the thought did occur to me...
I can visualize the snowdrops in my minds eye...
unfortunately my eyesight is not 20/20
all kinds of activities
things near and far
so the time has come...
a magnifying mirror
eye make up
and dare I say it
8X magnification on one side
an honest and true reflection on the reverse
Anything new that comes into the Bungalow needs to be inspected
as you can see
Pepper is on the job.
I was surprised at how expensive these mirrors are to purchase
I have been looking for a sale
and have had no luck
I gave up waiting
this is more of a need than a want.
my favourite magazine
at first glimpse
I thought the flowers were snowdrops...
now glasses on
I see they are muscari album!
Town and Country
arrived in the post
looking at the cover image
I pondered who the target audience was...
funnily enough the issue is titled Spring Fashion
and flipping the pages I see that this image goes with the article
"What is a Socialite?"
not Spring Fashion after all!
my current bedside read is
The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austin
by Syrie James
Mr. HB and I took in the film
The King's Speech and we both loved it...
Colin Firth's performance is superb
if you haven't yet seen it
I highly recommend it
and the book is available at the booksellers.
peeking inside these sweet snowdrops
can you see why I am infatuated with their beauty?
there's so much detail
in such a small space
The Hostess has
an embarrassingly large punch
of greedy gardener's envy!
