Enjoying blooms, inside and out. The strawberries are blushing on the balcony, the frangipani are releasing their sweet perfume, and my local op-shops are bursting with embroidered bouquets (and darling little dresses).

Certainly enough to put a spring in my step. Happy Monday, folks!

    I think those strawberries deserve to be paired with pancakes, don't you agree? :)

  8. Don't frangipani flowers smell simply divine? We have them blossoming every where here in Darwin. One of the small pleasures of living in such a humid area :-)

  10. Op-shopping for a little girl can be quite dangerous. Coco spent most of her first two years looking like a pioneer baby.
    Hope that spring lasts the whole week through xx

  25. Oh my I miss the smell of frangipanis. Munich is not quite, um, tropical enough. And op shops full of vintage dresses sounds just as divine. I'm not a tiny bit jealous. Not one little bit. *Cough*. Yay for spring! xx

  27. Those dresses - so pretty! I may have bought a teeny vintage one last week just in case there's a little girl in this growing belly of mine.

    Love the op shop pictures too, beautiful xx
