I once met Jane Brockett from Yarnstorm and 'The gentle art of domesticity' book fame. I read her blog today and saw that she is being influenced by 'glaucous' green too. I think spring does that. Each time I go to choose the colour of the typeface at the moment I head straight for bright green.
I wanted to take a photograph of these lovely daffodils. My husband and I bought our first house because of a jug of daffodils. It was a little two up, two down in Tooting, London. It was extremely dingy and everything seemed to be covered in polystyrene tiles. Those are easy to remove but not the cement glue that is used to put them up. Anyway, amongst all the yuk there on the kitchen table was a jug of daffodils and I knew I had to have the house. We lived there for 10 very happy years!
My little daughter (age 5) is learning about Van Gogh at school. I dropped off her 'show and tell' this afternoon and found her in her classroom painting a gorgeous sunflower picture - another yellow flower to look forward to in the summer.
