Velvet


This week's Nature in the Home theme: red.


It was probably the easiest so far for me, as we have a bit of a selection in the garden at the moment. I'm especially liking the little wild strawberries. I pick and Joe eats. 

But I opted for these velvety nasturtiums. I plant them each year now, as they run wild through the beds and brighten up the patches given over to potatoes. This time I chose seeds which would give us rich, deep reds. I love this colour next to orange and lime green, and violet...

(That underneath the vase in the above picture, by the way, is some lino printing I've been doing. Very mid-century modern).


And this little blue lustreware vase is perfect for red flowers. In fact, I reserve it exclusively for them. I think I have too many vases...


I find them difficult to resist I'm afraid.

    1. Thanks! The pack of seeds was only £1.95 or something and they just keep coming and coming.

      And the duckegg blue with deep red is one of my favourite colour combinations. Love it!

    1. Good aren't they? The more you pick, the more appear. Although you need plenty as they're so tiny!
