This little chap was made by my son-in-law.
I have recently returned for a week’s holiday in Solva, with my daughter A, M and their 3 children.
Wales is always wet and windy, but we did have a glorious time with masses of sunshine, days on the beach building sand dragons and rock-pooling, wild walks, meeting up with family and friends, and relaxing in the evenings with a glass of wine – and seaweed.
A Wild Food Foraging walk with Julia of Wild About Pembrokeshire, gave us the information that all seaweed in the UK is edible, so long as it is still growing on the rocks. So I gathered some, washed it and marinated it in SoySauce, piri piri, black pepper and lime juice, garnished with edible honeysuckle florets.
The seaweed was crunchy and delicious to nibble with a glass of Pinot Grigio or a tasty Malbec. Go on try some!
Can you believe it! Honeysuckle in January – the weather has gone all ‘Pete Tong’!
The flowers are scented with a subtle, slightly sharper scent than summer blooms and sit in another charity shop find. I just love the design of this little mug.
In answer to Cathy’s question in her ‘Vase on Monday’ post, regarding the weather in my part of the world, this is the view out of my kitchen window: dark and raining…… again!
I had to play around with exposure settings in ‘Photos’ to get any decent pictures
As you can see the Kalanchoes are about to burst into colour again, I think it is due to giving them the proper amount of light.
An update on the progress of the hyacinths….
(This is my contribution to Cee’s Flower of the Day ; I Heart Macro ; Macro Monday, and Today’s Flowers.)…..don’t you just love that dusty mix of purple and grey-green…..
…..they seem to be stemless, but at least that means they won’t be flopping all over the place. The scent in my sitting room first thing in the morning is delicious!
Do you know what this is?
I’m making this my houseplant of the week, but I don’t know its name. A friend gave me a little off-shoot about 6 months ago and it has multiplied and now looks as if it is about to flower – very exciting!
Do you have a houseplant looking at its best at the moment?
