I ventured out into the garden camera in hand
raindrops sprinkled and wind tossed my hair...
I managed to capture a few images before I was chased back inside by the inclement weather.
Did you know that Yellow Primulas have a scent?
sweet and intoxicating
if you don't believe me sniff one after a rainfall!
Crocus almost ready to open
are the consummate harbinger of Spring.
Yellow against the backdrop of brown or black or perhaps grey
from a BC Gulf Island
placed in the garden
texture and interest...
It was too stormy to stay outside
I am showing some details from the lower level of the Humble Bungalow.
we have a few doors with locks
and the keys at the bottom and left
work in these locks
and round suncatcher prism
I find that the old and antique keys have an appeal
that todays keys seem to be missing...
am I the only one with this thought?
Vintage clock winder keys
an antique country cupboard
would you wear a key?
Crystals on a tarnished silver tray
matte white collection
I have heard it said that elephant ornaments are good luck
only if their trunks are up in the air...
these are found on beaches on the rugged westcoast
and all the way up into Alaska
blown glass with a pontil on the bottom
Bowl of floats
I planned to have a pond in the garden awhile back
I thought it would be fun to float these on the surface...
we gave up the idea of a pond
and have put in raised veggie beds.
The price of fresh vegetables has risen so much in the last couple of weeks.
I think it must be the price of gas and that bad weather in Mexico and California.
Have you noticed?
I gasped when I saw zuchini at $3.99 a kilogram
we grew 3 plants last season and had a wonderful crop
I picked them when they were small and tender
and we enjoyed them so much
I wish I had frozen some.
It's positively beastly outside
I have made a hearty chili and that will warm us up
and there will be leftovers for tomorrow night too.
I am still very much in love with Le Creuset
this dutch oven cooker
is so versatile
cooks on top the range
or stews away inside the oven
the way I look at it is
I get in a wee bit of weight/strength training
toting them about
and they last forever!
Doesn't it look pretty next to Pepper's kitty grass?
She has discovered the grass and nibbled a bit of it
but much prefers tulip bouquets.
I can only wonder what she will do
in the Summer
when I invite copious amounts of David Austin Roses inside
they are my passion
I adore arranging large billowy bouquets
placing roses in every room of the Bungalow.
I think Mr. HB and I will be viewing
a few more episodes tonight
we loved it ages ago
we still love it today!
Dear friends have gone off to the Jolly UK
for 6 weeks
so they have loaned us some of their classic videos.
Wherever you are
I am sending thanks to you
for stopping by
and spending a few minutes
visiting the Humble Bungalow.
Hugs from the Hostess
