So that I may be redeemed in your eyes, I wanted to show you my lavender-coloured lavender in its pale green planter, a shade which I recall was described as French Green in the seller's blurb. Who among us does not square their shoulders in quiet pride at owning something in French Green, once the pain of self-assembly has been forgotten?
|There's the lavender. |
I probably shouldn't have mentioned that the planter was self-assembled.
One day I must show you something I inherited
in case you think I am nouveau riche,
or indeed merely nouveau.
So, you see, if you disregard the sunflower yellow front door and the bright red bench, I am at heart a gracefully faded lady, and will gain my rightful place in the great brocante in the sky when the Blogtopian empire finally topples.
I must dash off now to photograph the item to be given away in my upcoming giveaway.
