back-garden loitering

Photobucket

Just a quick post today, ladies and gentlemen. I seem to have gone from being almost ahead of myself in school to being woefully behind in the space of a week. Accordingly, here's a few more pictures of me lurking in my back garden. For those who said last time that they liked it, why thank you! I can't take any credit. And for those who asked if I have any plans to do anything with it... erm, no. I'm not very domestic. And I'm just renting, so I don't really feel that it's my place to plant zucchinis or anything! But it's a nice thought!

Yep! And especially cheap clothes from a "long" time ago!

I guess it's pretty predictable of me, but I love the style of these boots! The compromise between flat and reasonably heeled!

The neckline on that dress is very nice. Do you ever wear it without a tee underneath?

Lovely as ever :)
I keep making attempts at our backgarden. When we first moved into the shoebox with it 's three meters of "garden" I left the weeds alone. I assumed we'd move soon but two years later I started planting some bits. Only by August I always lose interest and the poor Greens are left to their own survival tricks. :D

I often wonder who clicks these lovely pictures... Can't be a tripod - can it?!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@NRIGirl. It CAN be a tripod as it turns out, which explains my recent trend of chopping off my own feet... ; ) I'm looking forward to getting my photographer back for a bit next week! : D

The pictures are great,and also the places (:

Back-garden loitering. That's good. At least you have some greenery to loiter in since you won't be planting your zucchinis! ;)

What a lovely little floral print. Dresses and t-shirts always make a good combination, don't they?
