It's a shame, because when I do revisit my holiday snaps, not only do they transport me back to that far flung adventure, but they're a wonderful source of inspiration.
Like this past weekend, I spent a couple of hours soaking up the Winter Sun in the garden, weeding and planning some pre Spring planting. It reminded me of our last Northern Hemisphere Summer holiday and the gorgeous array of flowering colour we saw...
Here's a couple of the photos that have me itching to plant lots of pretty colour this spring...
|sunflowers, sunflowers & more sunflowers - Marie Antoinette's farm, Versailles|
|yellow in the shade of an apple tree - Cappadocia, Turkey|
|gorgeous colour by the roadside - Cappadocia, Turkey|
|growing wild in amongst a temple ruin - Hanoi, Vietnam|
|hanging orchids for sale - Hue,Vietnam|
|potted hot pink bougainvillea - Hoi An, Vietnam|
|unbelievably pretty, if only I knew what it was..? - on the street in Budapest|
|hundreds upon hundreds of festive red planter boxes - Hirmer Department Store, Munich|
|rows of bright red cockscomb - Hanoi, Vietnam|
|sort of related.. a masse of vintage floral still life paintings - window installation, Munich|
What will you be planting this spring..?
