If the world was devoid of colour what would I do? I would have to get used to a tasteful black and white blog for a start! My wardrobe would be the height of fashion for once in trendy shades of black and grey with white accents. I could get used to black and white food I think… but I couldn’t manage without some colour in the garden.
- I would miss the brilliant reds of of succulent spring tulips which last for just a few days.
- I would miss the fresh lime green of ferns unfurling and squeaky new hostas for a few weeks.
- I would miss the glowing bronze and russet tones of foliage which last for a few months each year.
Most of all I would miss the leaves on the all trees. In particular I would miss the beautiful green leaves on the oak tree in my garden. If I had just one wish I would keep the oak tree green in the black and white world of the future. I would sit underneath it every day with my coffee and remember how the world used to be when all the trees were green.
I will probably do that this winter anyway!
