It’s the time of the year to start growing Paperwhites. I am such admirer of these beautiful and delicately aromatic flowers. It is so simple to grow Narcissus bulbs.

Enjoy the step by step photos below.

The man in my life loves to cook so it’s no surprise that I end up taking a lot of food images! Our summer was filled with a lot of barbecued ribs and chicken which lead me to a serious craving for some veggies. So, he made me this pesto yellow lentil burger.  It was absolutely delicious!!!

These silver flowers are one of my favorite pieces of jewelry, although I seem to never wear them. I wish there was enough time in my days to create a different and unique hairstyle to compliment them or maybe I should simply make the resolution to wear them with or without a fancy hairdo!

There’s nothing quite like a pinstripe suit and adding a yellow fluorescent flower and shoes gives it a unique personality!

There is something amazing happening in Vancouver, the summer isn’t going away! We are not used to such fabulous sunny days on this side of the world come September, so when it does happen, there is only one thing to do and that is to enjoy it in every possible way. What could be better then a pretty afternoon picnic while crabbing for dungeness crab. Eating cupcakes, plums, roasted vegetable sandwiches while sipping fresh lemonade!

I hope you are enjoying the arrival of fall wherever you are.
