1 I’m still putting things back into the nearly renovated dining room and ‘discovered’ our treen all over again. This little round box, about 4″ diameter and 2″ tall, is a lovely example.
The two sections can be unscrewed, and there are three pieces inside.
When assembled, these make two beautiful candlesticks, about 3 1/4″ tall, and a snuffer. We’ve never used them and I don’t think my Mum and Dad did either but we’ve had them as long as I can remember.
2 The White Cistus is covered in flowers that look like poached eggs and the bees are loving them. The whole bush appears to be buzzing.
3 This delightful mauve flower has seeded itself in my herb garden and serendipitously, its flowers co-ordinate with the Thyme, the Sage and the Chive flowers. The flowers appear from a furry little bud which uncurls to form several flower stems with lots of little flowers on each. Can anyone tell me what it is, please?
P.S. A neat little thing I noticed as I posted – this is my 651st post and today my 651st follower joined me in my quest for the beautiful things in our lives.
