Until I had read Christopher Lloyd's thoughts on colour and visited his garden at Great Dixter - http://www.greatdixter.co.uk/ - I thought that pink and yellow "don't go". Now I think pink and yellow can look fantastic. I think if there's a touch of green in the yellow it helps. How about pink and yellow socks?
The pink is Smooshy, the yellow/green is Socks that Rock, the mixture is presently Cherry Tree Hill but shortly to be Koigu in very similar colours, and the dark green is from my Great Granny's stash. How about that for marination! She died in the early sixties in her 97th year, so the yarn must be at least fifty years old. My Great Uncle George never wore shop-bought socks all his life and by circuitous routes I have ended up with her sockwool leftovers and even some unworn socks. (Uncle George, by the way, fought in the Battle of the Somme and died at the age of 103!)
Great Granny was quite a formidable lady by all accounts. She decided to pass on some stocks and shares to some of her children in order to save on taxes. They sold them, but had to pretend to her that they still held them. This meant that they had to scan the financial pages of the newspapers so that they would be up-to-date with the dividends - which they had to pay to her. Totally illegal of course.
I took a picture of pink roses and yellow lady's mantle in the garden, but it didn't work out, so here's a view of the back of our house - just because there's no scaffolding and I've swept up...
It's rather shady round there, and we haven't got a greenhouse, so I've had to be a bit ingenious in order to grow veg plants for the allotment.
I can move the tables and trays around to catch the sun. I've been sowing the seeds into modules, covering them with black plastic and a sheet of glass. It has worked pretty well. Here I've got two sorts of lettuce, red kale, cabbage, chives, squashes, and several sorts of beans.
I've got more socks on the needles, but this has been a long post, so I'd better save them for next time.
