I wrote about making pizza with our gorgeous next door neighbours last week. As well as being some of the nicest people you could ever, in your wildest dreams, hope to live next door to, the also have a kitchen that causes me to have bad attacks of kitchen envy. Don’t get me wrong, I love my little kitchen, my blue glass tiles and the fact that I helped build and paint it – but 10 years on, it’s showing the signs that I did help to build it and the bits that were a little bit wonky are now struggling under the weight of my newer, heavier pots and pans.
Anyway, back to the kitchen envy. Just sitting there in a very plain white jug on her windowsill were these lovely anemones. Picnik may have gone but Picassa has adopted many of the features so with a bit of technological jiggery pokery (although not that much), I bring you these:
I love how anemones have such beautifully defined petals but look so solid at the same time
and despite the fact you look at them as a solid colour, in the middle there’s a little blast of colour just waiting to be spotted
and that the stems may look a bit straggly but actually they’re just doing their own thing, getting ready to bring some more beautiful blooms to us.
Kitchen envy – yes, flowers in kitchen looking amazing envy – yes. Envy is not a good thing – maybe I should go and buy some new flowers for my windowsill. What do you think?
