My winter wonderland garden earlier this week!Ladies/Woman's day here in Bulgaria & International womens day the world over. So first off Happy Ladies day. I wonder how people will celebrate? Here we have a meal to celebrate, any reason to yash, pee (eat & drink).
The weather is all over the place this year but its the best winter from the last three, in my area anyway.
We have never gotten more than inches of snow this year where as normally we will awake to 3' over night! Today is a mix of beautiful sunshine then a flurry of snow all mixed in with a bitter Siberian wind.
As I type this the sky has darkened so it is looking like a storm is brewing, in fact it was a blizzard the snow falling at a 45deg angle on & off for a few hours. Hopefully if the forcast is correct we are heading for 4 days of lush temps 18 & 21c woohoo I say. I know we are due hot weather mid March then a drop again till the end. I am just hoping that by the beginning of April Spring will be here to stay!!!!! I would like to say we will go out & about & enjoy the sun, but we have so much to do & we are finding it really hard even to get to spend a day with our friends Bev & Norm. Nigel says he should be finished in two weeks, you saw it here! I am starting to have design ideas again, I love designing but I think living here I had lost it a bit, my juices are running again now & I love my eclectic style. Problem for me was living in a house that needs renovating. Also most of my treasured items had to be left in UK as we had no room for my beautiful Balinese huge carved mirrors, mask & leaf frame plaque & wonderful painting of a Bali dancer, a huge painting from a friend who did it just for me, as a gift, my saddest loss! Along with most of my African items. We managed to bring one panel from three hand crafted solid wood carved & mother of pearl inlaid screen, I am soooo sad about all my lovingly collected items but at the time I told myself its a new start & they are just things. This has not helped me to settle & make a home but I have given myself a kicking & now I am feeling it ;D Looking forward to putting my stamp on the place, it's been ok but not truly me! I am a bohemian character & it has been lost here, I seem to have turned into a villager ;D
Right enough of my rambling.... We had to do a trip to Polski Trambesh to get sand for the concreting of the floor & fire hearth. Now what a beautiful sunshine day it was then half way there we drove straight into thick fog! it redeemed itself eventually but how weird was that just a literal wall that carried on for miles.
These photo's were taken on the same road 5 mins apart, wacky weather!
I never tire of driving to VT as I love the scenery. I love to pop in to our local potters house & look at the new designs, a list of things I love is written in my mind for when we have some disposable income ;-)
