In my dream garden, the one that has lots of sun and minimal varmints, and perfect weather and maybe a gardener, I'd grow lots of hydrangeas.
Mr Mandela's funeral was moving. I still have hours of documentaries to watch. It's fascinating hearing everyone's insights about him.
Wish the garden could be this lush again
I've had some emails asking where this stripy cloth is from. Spotlight. I think napery might still be on sale. But you'd better hurry.
Love those little feet under the tree. How can that be 2 years ago?

My little nephew's put the star on his real tree in Hong Kong. It looks gorgeous.
Its so hot here and I luff this summery photo of my friend M at our friend N's house on the weekend
N has a big garden and supplies us all with bromeliads for our gardens. Cue the bromeliad visuals!
The prize pool has expanded for our Giveaway! Exciting. We've added this appropriately named Fuchsia Pink Turkish towel from Freshwater Style to our giveaway. Perfect for summer and the perfect shade too. Just leave a comment to be in the running. The more interesting the better. I'll announce the winner in a few days.

Her initial is P and she and I are now Real Life Friends! We've spent time in Paris and London and Melbourne together since then.
This is a visual of that fateful day-
And here she is in Melbourne this year embracing white on White. P if you are reading this I got your parcel and thank you! How lucky I am to have met you.
Have a lovely Wednesday.
