Faffing with photos

Spring is bringing the colour back to the landscape’s cheeks but I’ve returned to monochrome. Last week’s Saharan sand-dusting muted the atmoshere and set the tone for this reduction of palette.

Mixed plant textures, Epimedium’s mottled leaves,  as well as swathes of Spurge. Personally I love the dark licorice and ice contrasts –  maybe its because I find its surety assuring for I’m in an undecided modality. What do others think I wonder?high contrast mono of Spring flowers, Tavistock square
