Shara and I

Monday, 3 March 2014

We have returned to Bingo, I painted the front verandah floor and bits and pieces.

This is the club where we play bingo, It is a beautiful place it is done like a tropical rainforest and I missed not going, it's been about 6 months we just had a little break for a while.
Waterfalls near the lifts.
Birds on the rocks.
And lots of fish but they are a bit shy




Now this is my front verandah that I have started to give a second coat of paint to
I just paint around everything and then move things as the floor dries, will finish it off tomorrow as it's raining again.
So I will just amuse myself inside for a while till it stops.


This is where Kidney spent the morning, none of them like the wet weather much.
and I finally hung up my shoe rack, I can never find shoes in the wardrobe so here I can see them.
The missing fish I wondered where this picture got to....



This is Monet's kitchen in France, I would love a place like this to cook in.
And his garden and below his house, we visited his home when we were in France a couple of years back and I just found these pictures the other day while cleaning up.
 It was a beautiful place.

 But my garden has picked up a lot with a week of on and off rain and I tossed around some blood and bone and fertilizer so that always helps.

 I trying to build Drummie a home but the weather is not co operating.


 But I'm not complaining as it is helping the garden after our long hot summer.







Well bye for now, time for tea.

  1. Lovely photos. The French lake looks so nice. You haven't put your stilettos in your shoe rack? They must still be in the wardrobe. :-;

    And the veranda floor, too. I'd love to see Monet's house. Have never been to Europe.

  5. Are those Cabbage dolls I see? I got one at the ripe old age of 18, just because I wanted one so badly...she was the type that had the long silky hair. I gave her away to a friends little girl but I missed her for a long time!

  9. Merle,
    Monet's kitchen is so charming, and the garden is beautiful. It looks like such an enchanting place. I think I could stay out there for hours. The club where you play bingo is so nice too with the waterfalls and fish. I love bingo and haven't played it in a long time. I see bits of red in your kitchen. I also have splashes of red. I think red makes the kitchen so cozy.

    Have a happy week.

    Love,
    ~Sheri

  14. Hi Merle, thanks for the tropical views - I could sit by that waterfall all day, I think. Your garden is looking very happy for the drink of water. I love your bright red curtains, by the way! Hope you win big at Bingo. I just dreamed I won a million dollars. Yea - in my dreams......Maybe you will have some luck. xo Karen

    1. Last week we all won a prize, this week only one of us won, you only win a meat tray but coming up to Easter and Christmas you can win hams, and they are very good.

  16. It looks to me like your garden has survived the summer rather well. Your porch will look lovely when it is finished.
    I don't like Monet's kitchen, but I love his garden!
    I like the fish pond at the bingo club too, ponds without fish seem a little pointless.

    1. I use the washing powder you can put on the garden so a lot of the water is the grey kind it helps things survive but the rain makes them grow, it's looking good now after a week of rain.

  19. Your garden's looking lush! I love verandahs, I don't think our UK climate would let that wooden floor stay like that for long!
