Spring is in the air in my part of the world and my garden is clothed in all its Spring glory. One of the highlights is this glorious magnolia tree that I planted more than 25 years ago that bursts forth with its
bountiful blooms that fill the air with its subtle fragrance.
The joy of watching my garden come to life again after its Winter dormancy never fades.
The sun was shining and the temperatures were a little milder so I donned my coral shirt coat from Australian
label Ark over some black layers , added a necklace that was a gift from my children many moons ago , some over sized sunnies from Karen Walker and a grey hat that I purchased from a milliner in Paris and I was good to go and enjoy the delights of Spring.
One of Spring’s traditions for my sister and I is to enjoy the flower show , hosted by our local Horticultural Society. Our late mother was a life member of the Society and we are both keen gardeners so this is a
tradition we plan to continue for many years to come.
These are just a small sample of some of the glorious blooms on show.
On my recent trip to Queensland for my wedding anniversary I was fortunate to meet up with Elizabeth,
who I had connected with through Instagram.Elizabeth lives in Brisbane and we spent a wonderful few
hours together getting to know one another through shared stories, common interests , food and a love of
art . Elizabeth introduced me to GOMA, (Gallery of Modern Art), where these photos were taken in front
of the huge and magnificent , Still Life Coconut and Other Things by Shirana Shahbazi and Sirous Shaghagi.
We also share the same birthday , some connections are just meant to be.
Elizabeth is not only extremely clever in her ability to create such visual joy with her outfits and accessories,
she is a talented seamstress and created the outfit she is wearing the day before our meeting.
Her Instagram is timeless_styling , well worth a visit , always so inspiring.
Thank you Elizabeth , I am sure will meet again .
