And, for those of you who have been here, you may remember that behind the big Bay hedge, we had a wasteland that I laughingly referred to as the kitchen garden.  Well, we gave up on that and decided that we would make it into a hidden cut flower garden.  I reckon I'm about 70% there, but boy what an improvement.....

The monochrome kitchen looks like the setting for the wood centerpieces, table and chairs. Was that the plan? I think it looks great.
The journey is the objective.

We wanted a space that would be easy to add colour, so we went for a monochromatic colour scheme that we could add splashes of colour/contrast.  When we get around to adding curtains etc, they will be full of colour....

Holy moly, G & P.... ??? That pulled together rather nicely.  ;)
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

Really, really nicely done, and a great thread to boot.

Get some pictures up once you’ve hung the curtains.

Les and I started on the courtyard today.  I made the tea and helped lift heavy things.....
