Happy Monday, people.
In my last post I forgot to show my Catherine the Great tee, from The Hermitage exhibition in Melbourne.
Catherine looks very imperial, doesn't she...
Meantime, this kookaburra appeared in our tree, shortly after we found a small dead snake lying on the ground beneath.
It was a white-crowned snake, one of the lesser venomous ones.
Could there be a connection? Well, kookaburras do eat snakes...
I really don't like the fact that snakes are emerging in August, which should be the middle of winter. That is hibernation time, snakes...
V and I went to see Iris, the movie about Iris Apfel, legendary New Yorker and fashion icon, who just turned 94.
We loved it to bits. Iris is an inspiration - so colourful and original.
She has collected clothes from around the world, in markets, China town, anywhere interesting.
Her quotes are very clever, and often hilarious.
Afterwards we went shopping at the nearest boutique.
This pencil skirt was a perfect fit, and found its way home with me.
Behold the Brooklyn Bridge on the front...
and I think that is part of the Empire State Building on the back.
Please let me know, Debra of New York..
I came home and gathered together my life-long collection of mostly worthless beads to put on display. If you keep something long enough, it's time will eventually return..
Our king orchid has flowered again, with three fronds this year.
This orchid came from my father's home, when he moved into care in 2012. We cut the orchid in pieces and shared it around the family.
It produced one bloom in 2013, two in 2014, and three in 2015.
Does this mean that orchids can count?
Have a happy week everybody.
