The beauty of Spring Blossoms in all their pink glory is always a sight to behold. These pink beauties are the star of the show in the garden of my sister Lyn. We both inherited our love of creating gardens from our late mother.
Berry tones and grey were my colour choice for today’s outfit. Starting with the grey silk trench style coat from Ginger and Smart worn over a grey knit from Lisa Ho, that is many moons old but I love its row of pearl grey buttons. I topped the coat with a berry velvet capelet , my first purchase from a small Melbourne designer Mickey in the Van. I must admit that maybe in hindsight as much as I love the colour it may have been a mistake as I really have very little in my wardrobe to pair this with.
My other berry element was my Kikomarina skirt , a recycle find some time ago.
My token pink item is the dusty pink Helen Kaminski hat, an old favourite that has been with me for many a Winter.
I always find that Spring is a time of renewal on so many levels and happily ponder the changes that a new season brings. I have a few things on my list that I hope to do, revisit my Spanish language classes that I did many years , take some photography classes to improve my skills and learn more editing , more travel is on the radar and some volunteering , where not quite sure yet .
On another note I have decided to stop colouring my hair and see where I it takes me , just as well I enjoy hats and head wraps , I see many in my future during the growing out process.
Halfway through taking the photos the rain arrived and out came my hot pink and black umbrella.
Spring rain is always welcome as it prepares the garden for the possibly warm, dry Summer.
We are lucky here in Tasmania as we have had Winter rain unlike many areas of Australia that are suffering drought conditions.
