Lilies are blooming in the parks.
Like many women I've been wearing black Yoga pants for most of the past year.
They work well for cleaning house and my daily walks...
They are not as dressy as I would like for running errands or patio dining.
So, I went shopping at Tulipe Noire, a small boutique on Oak Bay Avenue.
Canadian made Lisette capris
After buying the capris I decided shoes would be a good idea.
(Aren't they always a good idea?)
I popped up to Walk in Comfort where I always can find a great pair of shoes.
Black leather loafers made in Spain by Bueno...
Oh so comfy!
Imagine my surprise yesterday
when a parcel arrived in the post!
The brown envelope was from a wonderful woman who lives in Vancouver
She sends me gifts from time to time...
cute polka dot sox
(in memory of my mother)
Inside the package was a sumptuous silk scarf
by Ralph Lauren!!!
This scarf goes perfectly with my new capris
most of my core wardrobe which is black.
I use scarves as my go to accessory.
Thank you Rosemarie!
You are such a kind and thoughtful woman.
also known as "money plant"
blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Our garden is bursting forth with flowers.
May is such a lovely month in our garden...
bright pops of colour in the perennial borders.
Hope that you are staying well and enjoying the first days of May.
We are feeling so encouraged since getting our first vaccinations.
The Covid cases here on Vancouver Island are slowly moving down.
Many people are in hospital with many in ICU.
We hope that all who want the vaccination will be able to get it.
Community Immunity is imperative for our future safety.
