🔹Colourful coastal walks on a March afternoon with contrasting hues so vivid the eye is in awe of her splendid beauty.

Her Beautiful Green Thumb

Her flowers always bloom with colour where mine wilt-brown and fade. Her thumb is green, alright. She knows just the right light, angled perfectly by the compass, to allow the buds to bloom beautiful shades of vibrant colours.

I can grow herbs, and sunflowers. Abundance of colours are not my thing, sadly.

Parsley, basil, thyme, cilantro and budding yellow sunflowers give me half a green thumb. To her full green thumb. She’s a wise young Sardinian friend, always willing to help and educate.

I’ve tried and tried again to grow colour, but she isn’t accepting of me. Instead I photograph her beauty in the wild and potted in friends gardens.

Do you have a green thumb?
