Back in the Botanic Garden again, where I started off this year… That’s because this gorgeous fountain is in there, all based on circles.
I’m really proud of myself about this skirt! I’m convinced the fabric is genuinely ‘vintage’ (until someone tells me different) because the texture of the fabric ‘feels’ old and the print looks old and 50′s style too, a kind of basketweave pattern with the scattered blue flowers.
My friend Jane is getting good at my photography now … she has the knack of knowing just how to compose a shot – Thanks Jane!
