As Spring draws to a close, I fondly remember the daffodils which heralded the arrival of the season. I have oft-repeated my love of bulbs, for their tenacity and continuous consistency, so let’s revisit a host of golden daffodils.
One year I splurged and bought some designer daffodil bulbs, shown below.
Enjoy one last look at a daffodil, because before we know it, Christmas will be upon us!
Just before Hallowe’en Shadow and Zorro discovered a hole in the bathroom floor, big enough to jump down into and under the house. How on earth could they find a hole that big? Wouldn’t Mum and Dad have noticed such a gap?
The explanation is simple. We are tackling the huge job of a bathroom renovation, which makes me wonder whether a little blogging on the subject would go down well in the blogosphere? The aforementioned hole was the result of the removal of the bath and waste, just right for a little under-the-house adventure.
Shadow, being black and covered in cobwebs, looked a little alienesque and well-suited for Hallowe’en, reminding me of something out of The Exorcist.
resignedly patiently while I took photos, before being finally let out exiting graciously through the front door.
And then, just as a practice for Hallowe’en, Zorro practised a little magic, of the “now you see him, now you don’t” variety.
So thanks, boys, for doing a sweep and de-cobwebbing areas that will never see the light of day!
Something new turned up in the garden, so of course Shadow had to investigate. The plant was from a garage sale, and probably had some traces of some other animal’s scent, which proved most interesting to Detective Shadow.
