Sweet Robin

This sweet Robin seemed unfazed as my hosts and I strolled around the delightful Victorian gardens of Biddulph Grange, a National Trust property near Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, England.

Memories . . .

Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers - may it be a safe, happy and adventurous year (in whatever manner you choose).
In Jan-Feb of 2014 I was greatly blessed to experience a house & car exchange for 3 weeks on Vancouver Island. It was an incredibly memorable holiday for many reasons, one of which was a meal at this fabulous restaurant/bistro in Victoria, BC -
Pagliacci's - the food was fantastic and my salivary glands are running at the
mere memory of the Prawn Broker dish I enjoyed here!

This is the interior d├ęcor of this thriving eatery

and this painting on the wall duplicates the restaurant interior layout

Not sure whether these were friends of the family or ..... ?

Another closeup of one of the wall hangings

. . . and here is a sample of their amazing menu (as at 2014)
I found their imaginative dish naming great fun!

If you are ever in the vicinity of Victoria, BC, I strongly recommend you track down this vibrant eatery - I doubt you'll be disappointed !
