Colour Palette Inspiration 3 - Lupin Love

It's Wednesday again already, and I'm not quite sure how that happened. Days seem to be whizzing by at an alarming speed at the moment, I can't believe we are more than half way through March already!

Anyway, as it's Wednesday that means it's time for a new Colour Palette post.

The warming weather recently has left me itching to get out in the garden. On Sunday the weather was glorious, so me and the husband decided it was the perfect chance to get out in the garden and do so spring jobs. While I was weeding the vegetable raised bed and planting onions sets (the first vegetables in this year, exciting!) he dug up a load of old shrubs down one side of the garden so that we can replace the rotten old fence, before putting in more raised beds for more vegetable and fruit growing. Exciting times - but more on that soon in a separate blog post.

Anyway, enough of my rambling... it's time for the Colour Palette. This weeks' is from a photo I took a few summers ago of one of several beautiful lupins I grew that year. It's a soft palette, with the promise of intense summer colour. A tease if you will of what's hopefully to come this year!

As always, if you enjoy this post I'd love to hear from you. Do leave me a comment to let me know what you think, and if this palette inspires you to create something I'd love to see it!

  1. What beautiful colours! I love lupins but haven't had much luck growing them, too many creatures in my garden that like munching soft stems! Good luck with the veg patch!

  2. Love these colours Emma. I used to have some lupins in my garden but they don't seem to be coming up this year!
