The other day someone emailed me a video of an advertisement that's won an award in Britain and the ad was for Hovis Bread. What memories that has brought back. When I was growing up we could buy it in the shops and I loved it. As I recall it was a small, heavy, dark bread. Hmmm, I thought to myself, I wonder if I googled how to make Hovis Bread, if I'd have any luck. I'm afraid not! There seems to be not only some secret ingredients but ways of making some of the stuff that goes into it that the regular cooks couldn't do. Now I'm wondering if it's sold in the city somewhere. I really have to check that out. Maybe in some speciality shop!
We finished painting the front porch yesterday. It was the first bit of sun we've had all week and raining again today. All that's left to do now is around the back of the house which I'll do while himself is away.
The grey Jays are back and forth. I don't see them very often so I'm assuming they have young nearby.
Chicken in among the St. John's Wort.
Speaking of chickens, I planted Dahlia bulbs the other day and yesterday when walking past that area I saw they were all on top of the ground scattered about. Then the night before last while covering up some annuals I went over to a small area where I had planted a few marigolds. It was empty. Strange, I thought to myself, I was sure I planted flowers here. Puzzled I looked under some of the perennials close by.....there they were, all kicked out of the ground and under other plants. Ah, the joys of having chickens, lol.
White Throated Sparrow. He wanted to get to one of the feeders but the bigger birds were keeping him away.
