One of the joys of my Spring garden is the blooming of this Magnolia. I planted it nearly 40 years ago and every year it rewards me with its beauty as well as filling the air with its scent.
The grape in the post title refers to the colour of this cropped Bec and Bridge jacket. I have had this little recycled jacket for some time and am fond of the style of it with its blanket stitch edging but not so sure about its colour on me. Maybe its time to pass it on – I will decide when I do a seasonal change over.
Time for a walk on a cool but sunny Spring day- this area is by the river and always a pleasant walk.
The jacket was paired with one of my Moyuru skirts. This particular skirt is a combination of black, navy and grey , in plain and stripes. I had intended to wear a pair of pants that I bought last Summer and had not worn since but to my surprise and delight they were too big . I am not strictly dieting more just eating healthily and watching my portions.
I have also re-acquainted myself with weight training , something I have done off and on for many years.,you can tell by my well used weights and dog eared book. I have a collection of DVD’s by Joyce Vedral , who was very big in the U.S. in the 90’s , that I find suit me . Joyce is now 76 and still in great shape , inspiration indeed. My main aim is to strengthen my muscles and help my bones , something so important as we age .
Just wondering where does time go – September 11th. is my 43rd. wedding anniversary. John and I will celebrate over lunch at Mud our favourite restaurant and maybe a glass of bubbles.
