My two favourite roses came back into bloom this week,
the Yellow and the Pink. I don't know their names;
they were like that when we got here!
Nothing says Spring like a pretty rose in crystal ...
except perhaps little pansies nodding in the breeze.
Our local plant nursery is a veritable feast of Spring blooms ..
and runs to a hilarious collection of kitsch statuary!
Hello David - Michaelangelo would turn in his grave!
On the When You're Onto a Good Thing basis,
I bought more pots of pansies for the deck.
I have a little garden competition with myself every year,
in which I try to keep pansies blooming in our scorching heat right up until Christmas. Most years I fail.
Are you enjoying watching Kate's tour outfits?
I think it is all beautifully thought out - Kate-style with a touch of the orient for Malaysia.
I like this dress, with its unusual lace overlay.
Can't wait to see what she wears in the Solomon Islands.
Meantime, back in the Cardinal nest, I am giving Pastels a whirl:
made some pale yellow sateen pants this week to line up with a mint green scarf and bracelet.
