Yellow and Blue

It's been one of 'those' days!  I've been busy doing mundane things and running errands so not much to blog really.   But something caught my eye as I was making a cup of tea.  


In an effort to get them out of the way, I had chucked a few sad looking lemons into a cheap tin bowl.   It must have been a trick of the light but suddenly those sad little lemons looked so beautiful against the dark blue enamel of the bowl.


The daffodils, forget-me-nots and grape hyacinths blooming in the garden are exactly the same colour combination.   


So of course, I had to pick a few to make a miniature still life to photograph. In the meantime, my tea was stewing away in the pot!  


YUCK!  That pot of tea had to be thrown away.   It was worth wasting a spoonful of tea leaves just to enjoy that wonderful combination of yellow and blue.

  1. What a treat to make a proper tea tray for yourself! And with those colours too, which are my favourites.

    I managed to find 6 bunches of daffs for £3 today. Bargainous.

  2. Oh yes, it looks so beautiful! These are my colours, too. But it's amazing: you already have blooming forget-me-not in your garden! Ours were far away from blooming. I have already admired them on the pic of your header!

    1. These little forget-me-nots have been growing in a crack in the pavement since February! I suppose the stone retains enough heat for them to bloom so early. They are now beginning to bloom in the flowerbeds, too.
