On our attic are at least 20 closed boxes.
They haven't been opened since our move to Belgium 9 years ago.
Once the kenderman and I were keen collectors of enamel and bakelite.
It is high time to rediscover :)

 I love water! The sea, a lake, a river, a brooke... even an artificial canal.
Such a great view of Bocholt-Herentals canal is a perfect way to start my day.
Although I'm an aquarius I prefer standing on solid ground :)
Another beautiful view here. Lots of canal views here

Cat Wheel

We have been thinking of buying a cat wheel. Our indoor cats could use the exercise.
A save wheel and noise free one is really expensive. So on Saturday we've rented one for a week.
Both Nim and Mats have been curious and walking in it.
I'm just wondering if their curiosity will last for at least a week :)

This is our first experiment with tree ferns indoor.
Last month was the most difficult time of the year. We're coping with scarcer
light and a much dryer atmosphere, because of the central heating, in winter.
Now we have a humidifier running a couple of hours a day.
The Cyathea lunulata is doing much better than the Dicksonia antartica.


I wasn't so keen on seventies colours and design before. I was born in that era myself ;)
But a few weeks ago I bought this seventies flower pot at the charity shop.
Still I need to find a matching plant. It's a difficult green. I think I'll go for black.
