Our pool area is surrounded by a glass fence. Fence is a must to make sure puppies and (visiting) kids can’t get into the pool un-supervised. However, a solid fence would block any view to the garden from the house windows. Glass fence is thus great – although it must be washed often due to the large number of visiting birds…
Our garden has embraced the fence, and many flowers lean to it for support, creating nice reflections in the sunshine.
I admit – a lot of my pictures are of Merlin. But he is cute, willing and always available for photos.
Self-made samosas in the freezer are the ultimate just-in-case snack. Stuart and I made another batch today – with just enough fooling around in the kitchen. The problem is that when the in-case moment arrives, the samosas are typically already gone. But we can always make more.
Merlin firmly believes it is his responsibility to lead the way, whether it is in the walk thrugh the park, or – as in here – running from living room to bedroom in the evening. He typically moves too fast for a photo, so I asked him to wait a little to snap this one. Bed can wait for that one extra minute.
It’s not the first time I mention pasta as a saviour of a long evening. It’s been busy few weeks at work, and sometimes just cooking dinner becomes a challenge (Stuart is travelling again and thus being no help…) – and I’m not even mentioning the challenge of taking the daily photo. Sometimes you can combine both.
Our neighbourhood has a lot of beautiful, mature trees. And they attract a lot of birds. Throughout the year we can listen to an almost continuous bird song – not all of it pretty, but nevertheless.
On a lazy Sunday afternoon (or any other quiet moment really), you never see Stuart without a book or newspaper in his hand. (at least in digital format as in here…) It is OK though – you won’t often catch me without mine either.
Being from Finland, having three lemon trees in my garden has always felt special. Growing citrus tress is not exactly possible in the cold and dark north. Our lemons are nto even ‘normal lemons’, but Meyer lemons – a mix between naartjie and lemon.
The first home-lemons for this year are slowly ripening again. Just a little longer…
Some people obsess over bags, shoes, or ties. For me it’s jewellery. One can never have enough of interesting, quirky, and colourful jewellery. Luckily, I don’t really want diamonds – I would just worry I’ll lose them. This helps to maintain some sort of sensible budget.
Travelling is fun, but then there is home.
