In honour of St Patrick’s Day this week and an image of a beautiful caravan that caught my eye I dedicate this post to the colour GREEN.
The garden is starting to sprout fresh green shoots all over the place which makes me very happy indeed. I spent quality time in my little plot this weekend, spring sun shining my chickens keeping me company and helping with the pest control. I tidied and pruned, swept and moved, planted and made lists of new gems that I want to fill empty spaces.
I can’t wait to serve fresh spring time dishes on my favourite platter and pick home grown stems from my garden. Producing things with your very own hands is such a rewarding joy that no one should underestimate in this very fast paced world of ours.
Green is such a calming colour I find, I sit in a green kitchen every day, my favourite pashmina is green and I’m wrapped up in it as I’m typing this as the sun has gone behind a cloud.
In hibernation at the moment tucked up in the garage are my chippy green painted German bandstand garden chairs waiting for a little more warmth before they adorn my bricked patio. Seating in green is refreshing, a hint in any form added to your interior spaces creates a fresh calmness.
See I already feel chilled just penning this post, embrace green in all it’s forms, I’d be utterly lost without it’s many hues.
