Yes London is abloom!  I’m rethinking my wardrobe and moving on to greener pastures….CLEAR green, not those muddy soupy ones.

Grandville always makes me smile with his verdant surrealism.  I could see Christopher Kane working something off ‘Les Fleurs Animὲes’

And the leaves at Kew Gardens are so full of chlorophyll you can taste it.

White strawberries with their teensy acid green pips are eagerly anticipated. 

Along with thoughts of summer fetes, preferably on bare grass.

OR…an entirely grass room as envisaged by American artist Sandy Skoglund - this REALLY made my laugh. Brilliant.

We wear it well indeed, and yet this 60′s Vogue colour palette would translate to interiors with ease.

Mynott??  When can I move in?!!

Now, if spring has not yet made you hopeful….DO spend a moment with Nicky’s adored Deanna Durbin and I’m sure you will find you ‘Can’t Help Singing’ either….!!

    Love the song!

    Hi Colette,

    Michelle put me onto your blog and I have become obsessed with it. It’s really fabulous and inspiring. Thanks for the rays of sunshine!

    How wonderful, I can never get over the miracle of the color green, especially at Springtime.
    I was just down South and the grass is sooooo green!

    is it the Victoria i think it is? big fan of Orlando possibly??

    It is, and so much so a fan of Orlando, that Charlotte was almost an Orlando. After many protests from friends and family, Orlando was relegated to her middle name. Poor Virginia Woolf….
    tragedy is her constant bedfellow.
