When I was thinking about which picture to chose as the introduction to the playtime post with the majestic Tigre Royal giant scarf I bought a couple of months ago, my mind went straight to memories of Marrakesh and the incredible splendour of the Royal Mansour (click here to see the post, or here to see the complete travelogue). What better roof could there be for a royal tiger than the ceiling in the Royal Mansour's reception area!
The noir/argile/turquoise CW captured my heart straight away. The neutral base of black, clay and white makes it wonderfully versatile to wear and a perfect scarf for all year round. It is my first giant silk scarf, and it's been fun to find out how my favorite knots for 90 scarves work in the larger format.

And what has little Milo been up to? Driving wild boar from their day nest in the woods and learning new tricks! Three wild boars stormed past me just 10 feet away, so I think we better concentrate on tricks only in the future! My favorite is 'cutie pie'.. when he hears the word, he lifts the paws up to the face and gives you the sweetest and most mischivious look. The reward is a tummy rub, accompanied by a peal of laughter from his mistress. It's a game we both love playing, and judging by his performances it seems to be his favorite, too!
