Green spectrum

IMG_5815

these past weeks and months have seen my fingers drop the paint brush and pick up knitting needles!  Strange because I haven’t knitted anything in over 40 years !!  The urge was ignited by coming across PURL SOHO on the net.  Luscious colours just drew me in.  See the image for the result !

I seem to be coming up through the colour spectrum, pre-occupied with red, now yellow, greens and turquoise.

The green spectrum has seen me sowing vegetable for the coming season.  All container grown next to my design studio, but at the moment they are sitting in my bay window soaking up the lengthening daylight…………  Three varieties of tomato, chillies, aubergine, outdoor ridge cucumbers, french beans, carrots, cavalo nero.  In a couple of weeks will start courgettes and runner beans………….  I have also grown peas shoots and fave bean shoots, trimmed at about 5cms make great additions to salad and stir fires, only takes 3-4 weeks from sowing to eating, and all done on the window cill !!
