I wonder who put this here and is there a message?
A spooky stuffed toy perched atop a crypt in Ross Bay Cemetery...
Red Geraniums planted on a vintage cannon at the corner of St. Charles St. and Dallas Road...
the house is in the mission style and we have always referred to it as "The Cannon House."
Sunny yellow dahlia the size of a dinner plate...
White tipped Red Dahlia, only one in a garden full of blooms...
situated on Hollywood Crescent...
you may know this home as it has the most amazing showcase of flowers at any time of year.
People frequently stop their car to take pictures...I have overheard the double decker tour bus operator's comment on this too.
Walking everyday is key for me to keep healthy and although it is not always easy
to be dedicated and motivated I just do it.
When the weather is sunny and warm it is ideal,
but soon the gale force winds will blow and the torrential rains will fall.
My knee has been troubling me these past few days...
not sure why
or what I've done
so I have walked gently taking notice of my knee.
Walking does give one an appetite for food.
"Winner Winner Chicken Dinner"
where does that expression come from?
Ina Garten does it again...
I've been watching her series on TV.
She has the MOST beautiful home in a spectacular location...
I think I'd love the Hamptons!
Fall colour and wintry root veggies...which will be roasted to maximize their flavour.
I've been reading up on Paris and French Femme style lately...
getting ready for my trip to Paris next spring.
Following on the heels of Jennifer L. Scott's Madame Chic book is this book
which practically fell off the shelf into my hands at Ivy's Book Shop.
It's insightful, funny, very honest and totally entertaining.
I think the authors are rather self deprecating in their admissions of their total "Parisian Femmes Confessions."
We served French style radishes last Sunday from the Moss Street Market
they slummed a bit when served with seven layer dip and baked chips for appies.
Emma Bridgewater held the bar high.
Delicious and low in calories, they impart a delicate flavour that was not as hot as regular radishes.
The weekend is now a distant memory...
I have some French homework to attend to, a date with Mom and Sis, and the garden is in transition which requires some attention...
Will be back when time allows...
please excuse me if I have been remiss but life is full and I have been busy
plus I like to live in the moment and savour all the joys of the day.
Thank you for popping by and visiting Our Humble Bungalow.
