Green Green-Collage-Creative-Countryside

Orange and Red Orange-Collage-Creative-CountrysideInspired by Sarah over at Mitenska, I spent a quiet evening alone this week sorting through photos that I have taken over the past year for this blog and segmenting them into colours. Colour is such a powerful influencer of mood in our lives and as reminiscing over past events, moments in time and progression in the garden can also have the same effect for me it was a lovely hour or so well spent.

Purple, green and rich burnt oranges and reds have always been among my favourites; rich earthy, jewel-like tones appear on my nails, in my home and in my flower vases. Although I can appreciate the elegance of pastels, it is the urgency and passion of these colours that really appeals.

Which colours are you drawn to?

May in Pictures

Looking through the photos I've taken this month has disappointed me. Despite one of my goals being to make more time for photography, it seems I've almost done the opposite and have fewer images than ever; not the intended aim, but it does reflect how busy I have been. I honestly have no idea where the month has disappeared to - even with two bank holidays I don't seem to have got much done!

Anyway, enough of my deliberations, this month has looked a bit like this (from top left): baking for a visit from the grandparents; beautiful sunsets over the fields; revelling in a late evening walk (this counts as my exercise...) and my parents' new home taking shape (you can just about make out Mr CC on the scaffolding giving a hand!).

What have you been up to this month lovelies?
