we have had sunshine
Mr. HB and I were out in the garden doing some light weeding and he mowed the lawn.
I picked some flowers.
We visited the nursery and checked out the new plants.
Have you ever seen a Jack in the Pulpit plant?
The flower is SO unusual!
I love the vibrant shade of this rhododendron.
On Saturday the sun was shining and it was warm so we went for a long walk.
Oodles of people had the very same idea and there were lots of people strolling along the seafront.
Smiles and greetings were the order of the day.
Sunshine has that effect on us after the "rainy daze."
Fairfield still sports a few streets lined with their names in blue tiles.
This pretty little blue flower caught my eye.
I had to stop and take a picture.
We cut through the Park on the way to our destination....
Beacon Hill Park is a large park in Victoria.
It is located not too far from Our Humble Bungalow.
The petting zoo is very popular with families and was crowded on this sunny afternoon.
There are goats, pigs, donkeys, bunnies, ponies, birds, and many other farm animals.
Turkeys wander freely.
Mr. HB treated me to a soft ice cream cone at The Beacon Drive In.
The line up was long but it moved quite quickly...
we walked back home licking our cones before they melted.
Nom Nom they are SO rich and creamy.
The BEST in Victoria!
One of our elderly neighbours down the street has been in the hospital.
Sadly he has no family.
While he was hospitalized a young couple who live close by
have gone in and cleaned and painted his home.
Other neighbours have been involved.
We all have been aware that his situation has deteriorated and we have been concerned.
He has some health issues and suffers from dementia
the young couple have taken him "under their wing"
How lovely that this couple is helping him out in a time of need.
I applaud their Kindness and Generosity.
We do not know what kind of care he will need in the future
but he has been assessed and there will be some changes and supports put in place.
He is certainly happy to be back in his own home.
It was more than obvious as
he was smiling and laughing when we walked by his house on our way home.
I must get my apron on and cook something to take to him.
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
