Lovely pictures as usual. You missed your vocation in life, you should have been a professional photographer.
I never open the windows otherwise the house fills up with nasty bugs!
Don't you have window screens?
No, I have never seen anything like that here. We just let the insects come in and make a meal of us.Ha!
Mosquitoes love me. I couldn't stand that!
Keith, it sounds like a fantastic BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY for you over there!! We couldn't survive here in the southern US without window screens.... and you certainly can't have a "country house" without a screen door!
Hi Don. Several firms have tried in the past to sell window and door screens, but failed miserably. 95% of time here it is too cold for insects, so it's a waste of money buying them just for 5% of the year when it's sunny!
Beautiful . . . . :)
Sorry Eddie, beat you by 1 minute.
That's ok Keith . . . thought I'd let you win for a change . . . lol
Those are lovely!
Aren't they? They love the shade of the crab apple tree and always do so well there. I'm always sorry when the blooms are done!
Maybe we need those all the timeThen you'll think winter is a crime lol
I know you think it's a crime,with all of of that white, cold slime.You'd like it better if you made a snow man fellow.Just don't forget...don't eat snow that's yellow!
Such pretty delicate blooms and leaves. Today felt like winter in So. CA. Overcast and very chilly. Don wanted something hot so made a casserole. Looks like we may have rain tomorrow.
Lots of people consider them weeds but I love them and have a special little garden spot just for them.It was 27 degrees this morning! Brr. Your hot casserole looked yummy!
Beautiful! I love this colour!
Violet....the name of the item and the color are the same! haha....just like orange/orange. Kind of fun!
Pretty. pretty. pretty!Jane x
Aren't they? And thankfully the frost didn't get them!
Hi Betsy- aren't they beautiful .. stunning photos. I know I've just switched the heating on .. sun's gone, cold and damp settled in! Happy weekend .. cheers Hilary
yes, our heat is still running....it will be a while yet before we turn it off completely.
It must be a good year for violets. My garden was full of them a couple of weeks ago, all over the lawn too.
They must prefer it cool and grey outside...lol...so they are really happy today! ha.
Very beautiful, all the more so for being small and shy.
yes, they are very unassuming, aren't they? :)
Many years ago, I would dry violets and violas between the pages of a thick phone book and then glue them to pretty gift packages or notecards. Hope you get warmer temps soon.
What a great idea...I bet those packages looked beautiful!...I think they are edible, too!
Green and purple are my two favourite colours so these photos made me smile brightly! Freezing cold here - can't quite believe that it is going to be May next week. Brrrrrr. And I see you have added more perfume bottle necklaces in the shop. Love them!
It's freezing cold here, too..damp coldness that sinks into your bones. Brr.yes, more perfume bottle necklaces...I love them!
Lovely violets and they are edible, they look so pretty in salads or as dessert garnishes.. Nothing like that blooming in my yard. I am keeping my eye on my rhubarb though. Another week of warm weather and I will be churning out wonderful rhubarb desserts:)
I love rhubarb....and I just "pinned" a buttermilk rhubarb sweet bread this morning. Yum.
Hoping you share a photo of that..it sounds so yummy.
Doesn't it? It looked so moist and yummy I thought I'd try it.....now to buy some rhubarb!
Such pretty flowers. When is your pollen season? I want to open our windows so badly, but need to wait another week or so until all pollen is gone. I've spent two days weeding my flower beds at the lake and I'm still sniffling and coughing from my recent creepy crud episode. Hope I didn't make it worse. Hope you get to open your windows soon.
Oh, we haven't even started pollen season yet! But soon....May/June usually. Trees are just starting to bloom but we're dropping into the 20's at night! Brr. The allergies haven't been too bad yet....so much to look forward to! ha.
Violets are so beautiful and the violet is one of my favourite colour.Have a lovely Sunday
It truly is a beautiful color! Thanks, Manu!
