A visit to the local greenhouse this past week provided for a colourful and cheerful welcome back to the south of France. Although the weather has been unseasonably cloudy and wet, the brilliant burst of colours at our favourite gardening centre did much to brighten the mood.
|This gloriously golden primula found it's way home with us.|
|The shop was ablaze with brilliant oranges and yellows.|
|The citrus trees in the yard were heavy with fruit.|
|Kumquat trees ready to be planted in someones garden|
|Neon pinks and oranges seem to have joined chartreuse as the "les couleurs du jour".|
|Pretty arrangements ready for Easter.|
|More primulas that now brighten up our balcony.|
It's no wonder that so many quilters and other fibre artists choose flowers as their design subject. The natural beauty and brilliance of a flower is always inspirational, and will always find a welcome home in all things thread and fibre.
