Buddhist flags, books and plants

Some of the things that remind me of home are loads of plants & books, a little prayer corner, temple incense, Buddhist flags, the smell of wet soil after plants have just been watered, fresh flowers and spices.

I keep trying to bring in influences of my childhood & what is familiar; to my current home and I've realized it is slowly morphing into little corners that remind me of homes I've lived in and the places I have visited and that stayed with me. I love hours spent de-weeding or re-arranging my green babies, reading amongst them and generally lounging about in my pjs and embroidered slippers with music playing in the background and a book in my hand.

This is a little glimpse into my home and a lazy Saturday evening relaxing after being slightly under the weather.

Yay! A fellow Penguin Classics addict.
I can't think of anything better than a chilled beer, some therapeutic weeding, the sound of prayer flags gently fluttering in the breeze and the feel of sunshine on my skin. xxx

That's clever how you used the bamboo shield to give you some privacy. It makes your balcony look like a secluded nook in a rainforest.

I'm reading On The Road right now too! I love your beautiful outdoor space, I would feel right at home there too among the greenery and the colourful flags. You look relaxed and gorgeous! xoxo
