A tropical getaway: part 1
I promised to share our third orchid exhibition visit with you and I'm going to do this in two separate posts. Mainly because I have heaps of lovely photos to publish: numerous photos of the exhibition(s), my outfit of the day, my glorious purchases and additionally a couple of splendid essential newcomers in our dining and living room. So, this time you can see various beautiful orchids, a cute red-eared slider, a newcomer in my Orchidaceae family and also those fresh pieces of furniture.
Without further ado, on the 16th of March we started our sunny but still crisp day at the exhibition that took place in the Botanical Garden of the University of Tartu. Which, by the way, was founded as early as in 1803 and is the oldest permanently working botanical garden in the Baltic countries and at the same time one of the easternmost botanical gardens in the European Union.
What I love the most about visiting that specific botanical garden in the middle of Estonian chilly and snowy March is the tropical climate. This warm humid getaway calls astonishing Crete to my mind and besides gives hope and energy to hold on as long as the actual summertime arrives. Additionally I of course love orchids and all other plants and adorable creatures such as their red-eared sliders. It indeed was a lovely forenoon!
Inspired by the first exhibition I purchased a sophisticated Ludisia Jasper Velvet from the second one of the day which, by the way, took place in a gardening centre called Jardin and offered more than one hundred different species of beautiful orchids. However, my fresh orchid leads to our day by day developing household and the last subject of today's post - the newcomers in our dining and living room.
Therefore we finally came across and naturally bought a fine folding corner sofa consisting of dark leather and wood and brown polka dot fabric. Looks proud and conjointly goes very well with my vintage working table. That table used to be a sewing machine from a well-known company called Singer but E. skilfully restored the entire thing and the outcome is now in front of you. I know I sure love it!
I also hope you enjoyed my very floral photographs and that you like orchids even in the least if not in heaps ;) My next post will bring you my outfit (which for one thing contains something from the little boys' section) from March 16 and moreover a few bargains so be prepared!
