Colour Therapy

1. Relaxation
2. Magnolia in bloom
3. Tofu Kebabs (recipe in next post)
4. Florals x 3
5. Garden in the rain

At the moment I am trying to increase and appreciate the colours in my life. Partially inspired by Jek in the Box's fabulous Flickr page, she has such an amazing eye for happy colour combinations that just make me smile whenever I look at her pictures.

I've always been a bright colours girl, and I'm particularly reminded of it in Spring when the world seems to be finding its colours again. Easter especially is such a colourful time.

(As an aside, it breaks my heart that the word 'magnolia' has come to be associated with all things bland, colourless, plain and boring. Maybe the paint colour, but look at that tree! Nothing could be further from the truth. Bah. I always think they look like they belong on another planet, they're so beautiful and other worldly.)

Happy Easter folks. There will be a recipe post before the weekend is out!
