...when we wake to ribbons and swathes of cheery bright anemones sometime next Spring.
I was looking at some old pictures of the wonderful gardens at Heligan and was reminded how joyous anemones are en masse. And so we have been dodging squally rain and autumnal gusts up here on the High Weald and planting anemone bulbs.
Hoping to wake one April (OK, maybe May!) morning to a scene such as this! Memories of this creaking back and ruined nails will have long receded and I can fill the Lane with jugs of velvety bright anemones.
It seems the creative team at Sanderson were thinking the very same thing - I am really keen on the work of Henri Matisse and so are they. We share a love of flowers and textiles and this new fabric from their Bloomsbury Canvas collection is called Still Life and is clearly inspired by the great man.
A perfect excuse for me to come in from the rain and pour over my Matisse books luxuriating in all that print and all that colour, soaking it all up.
I think it has done me good - like eating visual oranges, filling me with vitamin colour!
Happy and colourful, that's a good place to start the day,
