Today’s post , albeit a little late due to a computer hiccup, features many of the things that bring joy into my life. Starting with the joy of wearing black and white in Summer, today it is this loose floral shirt , an old favourite so cool and comfortable on a warm day.
This little guy named Raffy joined our family three years ago and is such a character and poses beautifully for the camera.
Shoes, of course, have to feature on my list. These embroidered mules from a local shoe store are a new addition to the collection this season.
Roses , mostly heritage, always perfumed are a passion of mine .Over the last 15 years my rose collection has grown to well over 100 and for a few glorious weeks in late Spring, early Summer they fill the air with their glorious scent. I enjoy nothing more than picking bunches of my roses to share with family and friends.
I have collected bangles in all colours, shapes and composition for many years, some are bakelite, some resin, some plastic. I have uncovered gems in thrift shops for a dollar or two , others bought retail often when I am travelling, the perfect souvenir.
My garden always brings me much joy, there is always a surprise like these frilly orange Oriental poppies. Gardening for me is a creative process, I think of it as painting with flowers.
