Green home...

When it's as grey and rainy outside as it has been over the last few days I need something to cheer my home (and me) up a little. I haven't quite managed to get my head around the fact that we seem to have gone from summer heat to November rain within the space of a week. I'm missing the slow transition to Autumn, you know, the one called 'Indian Summer', and the sudden lack of colour and sunshine is playing with my mood. As there's only so much chocolate even I can eat, flowers are the next best thing. Flowers and some fresh food that at least lets me pretend that it's not quite time yet for stews and casseroles. Greens, pinks, whites - I'm clinging on to summer until I'm ready to admit that Autumn has in fact arrived...
