The Dog Days of Spring??!!

You've probably been wondering where I've been the last week or so. The truth is we didn't make a cake last week so I didn't have anything to post!! I'm sure we can rectify that situation fairly quickly!

Yesterday was a strange day for weather.  By mid morning it was almost 20°C and a few hours later it was 24°C with a humidex close to 30°C.  Wow! (Today at the same time it is only 10°C) Big fluctuations in temperatures lately. Definitely keeping us on our toes for choosing clothes in the morning.

 I didn't realize how warm it was until I noticed my shag area rug rolling around on the grass...oh wait, that's Mabel.  She loves lying out in the hot 'summer' sun.

...I can assure our groomer that a phonecall in the near future is necessary!

I was inspired by my niece Chloé and her recent garden pictures and I took a few myself.

I have a lovely rogue patch of purple pansies growing in my grass this year.  Such a pretty sight.

I'll have to get some tips from Chloé when I see her next.  Although I use my camera everyday for product shots I still haven't had much time to play with it for other things.  Learning everytime I use it which is half the fun!


  1. What no cake????

    I suppose we can all dream about being great photographers like Chloé. I have to admit that I felt a little shaky with my camera this week. Hard to live in her shadow and she IS taller than me now! :)

    I think you have yourself a wild violet there. Beautiful!

  2. That's funny I had originally written violet and then changed it to pansy! So much for my garden knowledge - all I know is that they are pretty!

    ...must find a cake recipe!


Thank you so much for taking the time to write a comment. I love to read them!
