  1. c’est presque la jungle. l’idee de la tete de lit est tres bonne

    it is almost the jungle. the idea of the bedhead is very good

  2. Ha! Great idea indeed 😀

    To answer your question about whether we grow lavender in Jamaica. Unfortunately we don’t. I don’t think it would do very well in our climate. 🙁

  3. Nice ! And are there mattress, the sheets and the pillows ?

    I like these flowers, in French “croscosme”, I find there are so cheerful and light at the same time

    I planted some in my garden last Spring, I hope I will have plenty growing in a few years…

  4. It is nice to see things like this being reused instead of thrown away. And the colors are gorgeous! We have some creative gardeners in San Diego as well – you might remember the post I made a few months ago with the old stove being used in the garden.

  5. Nice play on the word “bed”! One sees a lot of otherwise mundane items reused creatively around the village I’m in. I like it.

  6. When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick the flowers in other people’s gardens . . .

    The ending of the poem pleases its readers when the woman says . . .

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
