more lives have been lost in these attacks.
As horrifying as the news is...
I feel powerless and sad.
My sister called me to tell me a friend of hers has passed away today.
She had been battling cancer, the fight was fast and furious, but very brief.
Several types of cancer had spread and metastasized before her initial diagnosis.
She knew it would eventually take her life...
she leaves behind a husband and adult children and many friends from the local garden community.
I visited her garden at Deep Cove on the water...she and her husband had created a special oasis on the edge of the sea.
Her garden was a place of tranquil beauty.
So lovely to wander along the paths, stopping to smell the flowers, or touch an unusual plant, make notes of the interesting foliage planted together so that each plant took centre stage and stood out.
Martha Stewart once sent a crew to take photographs of their home and garden...I don't think they were ever published in the magazine.
An overblown Parrot tulip sits in a vase in Our Humble Bungalow bathroom...
the tulips are very beautiful and remind me of paintings from the Old World Dutch Masters.
Each tulip is different...just as an artist might paint them.
Mother Nature and her handiwork helps ease the spirit.
can you see the leaves have a few cat bites?
Bowing their heads...
I forgot to pierce the stems just under the tip of each bud to help them keep hydrated and stand up straight.
Their colour is so cheerful...
(leaves with the cat bites!)
The culprit is Chester...
he is the cat that we lovingly refer to as "the troublemaker."
Keeping busy helps helps to soothe the soul...
I made a cheesy frittata for dinner and will serve it with a simple green salad.
Easy Peasy Frittata
6 large eggs whisked
1 chopped red pepper
2 green onions sliced thinly
1 cup of leftover veggies cut into small bite sized pieces
( I used squash)
leftover beef, chicken, salmon or crab cut into small pieces
2 cups grated cheese
salt, pepper, parsley and any other spice you like
(I used 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning)
Pour into an ovenproof casserole or quiche pan.
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes until set.
Serve with a simple green salad tossed with a vinaigrette.
