Weekend Bits No.2

I've mostly been staying in the past few weekends, what with working, Easter, and then this weekend not feeling too well, but that's okay, my balcony is starting to actually get a little sun!
Recent acquisitions: More new tea and the new Kinfolk. The teas are Royal Tea with Caramel from the Russian store, and something I bought on impulse at my neighborhood fancy foods store, Jaipur Avenue chai mix. It is cardamom flavor so how could I pass it up? Yum. (I see on their website they also have Saffron flavor!)
Over easter I made puffed pancakes from this recipe, and they turned out pretty amazing.
A few rainy weekends ago at the Chinese Garden I spied the most amazing fish disappearing mysteriously into the cave!


  1. Sounds like a very lovely weekend! And so happy to see spring coming to your home and all the plants blooming.
    I recently got into chair tea at home myself-- I've taken to mixing it with a dash of coffee creamer. I think I'm addicted!

  2. As a passionate tea lover the second photo is my favourite! <3

  3. I like the photos of the chinese garden and your cup of tea looks very inviting indeed! :)

  4. The Japanese Magnolia in one of your shots looks stunning :)

  5. What great pictures! The tea sounds simply amazing and the beautiful fish sneaking away is so cute! I was gardening a few days ago and thought of your wonderful seed-planting paintings. They pop into my mind every now and then and make me smile. I just love your work.
