Winter Garden

I peeked behind the cacti. I could breath in the tropics almost as I had been back in the place below the equator. Oh the greens, the lights and the blue skies! The winter garden is a hidden paradise within cold grey February.

A little photoshoot in this magical glass house garden was definitely a brilliant pick-me-up in the middle of a dull slushy day that had already wet my shoes and killed my curls. I don't know how can it be possible I haven't tumbled into this place before – I've seen it and drove past it a million times but it never occurred to me a paradise might lie within it. Better later than never, I guess.

I was wearing this Sister Jane shirt that has been hanging in my closet for months and months. The leopard pattern is really amazing and fits the "jungle" theme quite well. I love the colours and the collar too not to even mention the black bow.

The earrings have a more dramatic story. Being my favourite pair of pearls I was devastated when one morning I could find only one of them. It took months and months of heart break and a one very very lucky morning that I could see something shining in the bottom of a tote bag. The joy was immeasurable and we've been inseparable ever since.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any tips? Cheers!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. I've used blogger for al the five years I've blogged and it's worked just fine. The only annoying thing is the blogspot bit on your url address but that's something one can live with.

      I'd say start with a free platform and try it out first. If you get really into it and want something more professional then go looking again. I've heard paid Wordpress is a good and easy choice.

      Good luck! Hopefully I'll hear from you again!
