garden moodboard - march 2014




Another month has flown by, and here I am sharing my monthly moodboard for March. While many of last months flowers have disappeared others continue to bloom: Daffodil, Grape Hyacinth and Primrose spring to mind. Others are only just emerging, like the Tulip. For me this month is about Hyacinth and Euphorbia, two of my absolute favourites for the garden. Both seem to radiate an almost iridescent colour and magical presence: Euphorbia with it's little cup-like flowers in the zingiest of greens, Hyacinths with their heady scent and gaudy colours that rise up through the green grass.

Last month I mentioned I'd entered a couple of images from this series in our staff art show. Well they seem to have gone down quite well with my colleagues so I'm thinking of opening a little online shop, selling some prints, and perhaps some cards. I'll be sure to let you know if I do!


Once again I'm joining Karin and Åsa in this series of monthly moodboards.

    1. Oh no! Are you sure? I remember last year some varieties taking longer to emerge than others. Some do seem to die right back where as others don't. I hope that might be the case.

  2. I am just seeing your moodboards for the first time-they are splendid, spectacular and I would LOVE to buy a print, note cards, etc. if ever you delve into that arena! So very beautiful; thank you for sharing!
