Day 81- Buy a Parasol

#341, Buy a parasol

I think with the arrival of Spring, I am hoping to find myself strolling through gardens and reveling in all the flowers. I think the purchase of a parasol will make it all even more romantic.

I often see ladies shading their faces prettily behind parasols at the Huntington Gardens. I am usually squinting and perspiring while I watch doting husbands take pictures of them in front of lavishly blooming wisterias.

This year, I will have a parasol too. Of course, rather than Chinese paper or Battenburg lace, I will be carrying this funky one I found on Etsy. There are some cute ones on Olive & Cocoa too.

I like the colors and it has that gypsy vibe I like so much.

Speaking of gypsies… here’s a song off the latest CD I’ve purchased, Imbarca by Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra.


Love to you on this fine Spring day.
