8th May ’17: In praise of neighbours

Hello lovely people 🍅🌸🍅🌸
Since starting The Colour File, I’ve become much more aware of my neighbours’ front gardens, chiefly in relation to whether I can pluck up the courage to ask if I can snip a bloom or two for my shelfscapes (flowers or weeds, I’m really not fussy). My wonderful friend @louloucupit lives just a hop, skip and a jump from Colour File HQ and has been imploring me for weeks to snap the orange poppies that grow in profusion in her front garden. So here they are, alongside some pale pink flowers from the wild garden of @rebelnottaken. I think this pale pink and orange are charming together. Thank goodness for lovely neighbours.
