As an all time lover of flowers their power to lift the spirits and simply add joy to the every day can never be underestimated. I found these satin black floral pants by Cooper at a local store last Spring (sadly it has now closed as the owner retired) and they have exactly the same effect on me.
I love the beauty and fragrance of hyacinths but for some unknown reason it is many years since I have planted them in this trough, seven in fact my first ever tentative blog post .
Back in Autumn my sister and I ordered hyacinths , tulips and ranunculas from a wholesale supplier in Victoria , taking advantage of their end of season sale . There have been a few surprises with the colours but overall we are thrilled with them.
Tulips have long been a Spring favourite of mine with their variety of shapes and colours. I would grow more but they are rather expensive here , so I usually settle for just a few but as they were on sale I couldn’t resist these interesting combinations.
Continuing on with the tulip theme is my handbag , this dear little bag is by Spencer and Rutherford . I came across it in Sydney many years ago and just love it.
The Mt Fuji tree behind me in its full Spring glory was an anniversary gift from John , not sure how many years ago , let’s just say quite a few.
The pants were paired with a pearl edged black tee from Ted Baker (found earlier this season) and a cream Ted Baker jacket from many Springs ago. A collection of various coloured bangles , large, round sunnies and silver ankle boots finished the outfit.

The sun is finally shining after several days of rain so we are off for a walk with Raffy and then maybe it is time for some wardrobe sorting. Dare I put away Winter – our Spring weather is so fickle.
All the best , Jill.
