I spied these pretty pink blooms on one of my walks this week.
They are just so cheerful
set against the grey cedar fence they seem to glow...
These colourful primulas are perfect for the front porch.
They are a welcome sight with just the right amount of "happy."
There are many different varieties of these plants available.
Did you know that the only ones with a scent are the deep amber yellow variety?
I always purchase some of the yellow ones as their scent is quite lovely.
I've been searching for a vintage silver champagne bucket for quite some time and this week the stars aligned and I found one in a second hand shop for a reasonable price.
I wasted no time and popped into the local flower shop and bought a new orchid where it now sits on our dining room table.
Flowers are such a tonic for the grey gloomy weather...
we have had a few patches of sunshine which raises ones spirits.
At my weekly bridge afternoon many of the women were lamenting about the weather...it seems to be a common complaint.
Some were eager to share their travel plans as they are booked on flights
off to warmer sunnier climates.
Travel to a sunnier spot is not on my radar...
so I add colour in my daily round and seek out "pops of colour" on my walks.
a lovely blue green mix in this sumptuous yarn...
I have been learning a lot about knitting with my new sock project.
The heel flap, turning the heel and the gusset have been a wee bit challenging but thanks to You Tube knitting tutorials I have been able to work through the pattern.
Do you challenge yourself by learning new things?
Thank you for popping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
