A few days ago I went to a nearby greenhouse to soak up the sights and sounds of a garden setting. This is one of my favourite things to do in the spring. I still have a month to go before I can put out any flower pots so this sort of bridges the gap.
It all felt quite dreamy . . .
I couldn’t seem to focus . . .
there were so many pretty flowers and I could hear the soft sounds of water running through the fountains . . . and it was warm, oh so warm . . .
did you know orange is the new power colour? of course you did . . .
everything from flowers, to paint, to clothing, to purses . . .
say whaaa? yes . . . this beautiful baby was in their shop . . . in the greenhouse . . . I still don’t know what came over me but I couldn’t walk away . . . I had to have it . . .
it gets worse, people . . . my orange power shopping didn’t stop with just a purse . . .
no, I had to have a scarf . . . I have a thing for scarves . . .
but these shoes sent me over the top . . . whenever am I going to have a chance to get shoes with an orange strip? to go with my orange purse? and my orange scarf?
No wait! one more thing . . .
I’m thinking maybe this could be my Mother’s Day present. But, I’m not my mother. . . (I just look like my mother).
Oh why do greenhouses have to carry merchandise like this? If I had wanted a purse I would have gone to the purse store. A purse was NOT on my radar. Especially an orange one. I’m in a quandary over what to wear with this pretty ensemble. I’m thinking a great pair of jeans and a khaki top.
The gardening can wait.
