our Humble Bungalow has 4 growing in the front yard and 2 in the back garden.
I went a bit overboard when I first discovered them a few years ago and just HAD to buy the last remaining plants in stock at the nursery!
They make a lovely statement with their large floppy moppy heads...
and when they get wet they bow their heads low to the ground.
That's when I took my handy secateurs outside and cut a few blooms before they got muddy in the soil.
With such pretty flowers one needn't use a fussy vase...
a simple white ironstone jug is more than adequate.
A reader recently asked if I had any of my paintings on display in our Humble Bungalow...
If you look at the top left of this image you can see one sitting on the plate rail above our arts and crafts trestle table in the kitchen.
They even look good outside on the deck...
Lime has snuck into my wardrobe too and my OOTD goes with the theme of this post.
Tribal ribbon top.
I wore this top with a mocha coloured skirt and some sandals...
(no picture was taken as I was late and running out the door to meet a friend)
Punctuality is very high on my priority list.
I have joined Instagram and hope that you might like to follow me at HostessofTheHumbleBungalow...
I will try to figure out how to link it on my sidebar.
I still haven't linked my Pinterest on the blog and am feeling very much like I could use a techy on staff here.
In the meantime I will plod along and hope to catch up...
Chester has been nibbling the planter on the deck...
Sleep will not come easy tonight as I went out for dinner with a few gals I knew from school and we chatted for three hours over dinner and after a couple of glasses of wine I was sipping several cups of tea,
(which were not decaf)
so I know that I am in for an evening of tossing and turning in bed.
I decided to work on this blog post instead of disturbing Mr. HB who has to get up early in the morning and go off to work.
Two new grand babies have been born into our circle of friends
They are first time grand mothers so it is a joyful event.
One of the things on my do list this week will be finding gifts for these two boys.
