✴ green living

I'm loving the green that surrounds us. Everything is thriving from the fabulous sunshine and although the garden is lacking in colourful blooms {must do better next year...} I'm learning to love the green and the leafy.
Jasmine leaves in a tiny glass bottle and small ribbon-tied bunches of ferns are making my heart sing this week. 
The botanical greeneries and crisp white linen make me think of an Edwardian parlour, I'm not sure why but there it is. 
So gloriously glorious and springy are the green and white hues, a perfectly elegant and cheap way to decorate a room and so very weddingy too! 
There I go again, obsessed with all things weddingy....
All things green....
ferns and jasmine from a shady nook in the garden,

home grown and home made pea shoot and walnut pesto, recipe here.
{I used old baby food jars, which are a perfect size for pesto and improvised jampot covers with fairy cake cases!}

Also, still time to enter my giveaway I will draw winners next week.
Sorry if you have had trouble commenting, blogger was a bit disturbed last week and I fear I have a lost some comments in the process. Hopefully now normal service is resumed {because wasn't it a pain?!!!}


  1. Ooh that pesto looks delicious! Loving the improvised containers.

  2. Ditto on the pesto - fab idea to use muffin covers x

  3. Beautiful pictures. Your right, green and white are so right together, crisp and refreshing x

  4. What gorgeous greens! Green makes me happy ;)

  5. That pesto is making me ACHE for summer (she types with autumn-frosted fingers)...

  6. Has your jasmine bloomed yet? Green is one of my fave colours. Loving the look of your pesto - I haddn't considered pea shoots - let us know how it compares to basil and such. :)

  7. mmm... looks delish! I think your beautiful pictures just made me like green a bit more!

  8. the pesto variation sounds divine, you've just given me an idea, and thank you!
    i love the greenness of your post. i love your style.
    i've been missing you, i think. probably my fault, huh...
