The Humble Bungalow Garden is starting to bloom...
May is truly a great month for flowers.
Lilacs in mauve and white
Pure white lilacs
showy pavement series rose
Pacific Iris dwarf variety
my current read
I did buy this book because of the cover!
Lily of the valley
I have masses and masses of this plant.
I could probably set up a stand and sell it to people as they wander by...
love the scent
"muguet de bois"
If the weather holds I'll take my tea down to this wee table
sit in the sunshine and soak in some vitamin D
after I've done my weeding.
Later perhaps I'll soak in the tub with some restorative epsom salts
and I might pop on this new top with white capri's.
Green is my favourite colour and this avocado shade called my name.
It's from the Joe Fresh line
perfect for summertime
light and rather gauzy.
I realized that I "need" to go sandal shopping
I only have one pair of decent sandals and they are going into their 4th year of service.
Flip flops are OK for casual wear
(and I have two pairs)
but with a dress or a skirt I like to have something a little more stylish.
I looked at lots of shoes but nothing really spoke to me.
I don't want anything too heavy or verging on frumpy
and a bright colour would be fun.
And why are decent shoes so darned expensive?
My BFF got a fabulous dress for the wedding
and we found an unconstructed cover
rather like a sweater alternative
soft light cotton
with great details that add a chic effect.
She also bought a new Roots cross body bag
and we lunched at Rebar and both enjoyed a delicious quinoa and wild rice salad with beans and avocado.
If you are looking for a fabulous vegetarian spot to lunch do not miss this diner.
Nothing like a fun day with my BFF and some successful shopping
to put a contented happy smile on my face.
Hope that your weekend is ticking along nicely.
