There have been a couple of mysteries this week here at Love Made My Home...
First of all we had the mystery of the plants that I wrote about on Wednesday. I can reveal that the mystery plants are these.
Some sort of multi headed daffodil or narcissus I am assuming, but I have no idea of the variety. They are gorgeous though aren't they. The flowers are tiny, less than an inch each across and don't really have any scent. The leaves are so long, about 18 inches each and still sort of rounded.
I plant bulbs in pots to try and keep them away from Mr Squirrel, he digs less in the pots than he does in the flower beds. That means though that I have to empty out the pots each spring for other things - once the bulbs are finished of course! I don't replant the bulbs in the borders as Mr S will just dig them up again and spread them all over the place and make a right mess.
These will stay though as I don't suppose that Mr S will come round digging in this pot, that means that although I don't know the variety of these I will have them to look forward to again in future years - yay!!
Must get better at noting what I have planted though....
The second mystery was where we had been away. This picture was the clue. I knew that if you knew, you would know because it is the sort of place that you know - if you know. Does that make any sense??? Probably best not to answer.
Anyhow, the answer is that the picture was taken at Lyme Regis in Dorset. We didn't actually stay here, but visited - more than once! All along the seafront there are gorgeous old houses and these are just two of them. Aren't they gorgeous.
We went to lots of other places too and travelled around a bit so I have a lot to share. Rather than overload you all at once with everywhere though I will spread things out over the coming weeks. Plus I realised that I still have pictures from our holiday last September to share - once I have sorted them out too!!
Photograph sorting needs to come higher up my list of jobs to do it seems. Turns out I took a few over 1300 pictures!! In the meantime here are just a few shots of some of the places that we will be visiting together.
St Ives - Cornwall
The Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden
St Michael's Mount

I hope that you have all had a great weekend and will have a great week ahead too!
