This post was inspired by cake and bulbs. At the weekend I had daffodils that sang in a jug and made a lemon drizzle cake that vanished without a trace. Both things find me nearly able to touch spring and I do love a good dollop of yellow thrown into the mix. In the garden I see little tête a tête’s raising their sleepy heads and primrose buds forming their pale buttery hued crowns.

So an ode to yellow occured, it is such a cheery colour in all its forms from the palest of lemon to the depths of gold, adding a hint of it to a scheme really lifts it to another dimension.
A jug full of yellow tulips, daffodils or blossom just makes you smile. A glinty shine of a buttercup held under ones chin to see if you like butter brings back childhood memories of warm sunny days.
An addition of yellow toned seating in any form will make your space sing.
To immerse a room from head to toe may be a little extreme for some, but boy it creates a huge impact for those who dare.

An easier solution to bringing this wonderful colour into your home is to fill a large bowl with lemons as a display all of its own then make some lemon curd which is just delicious. (One of the best recipes for lemon curd is in The Family Cook Book pg 143,which has well turned pages in our house)
