Dip into the crushed berry and ice-cream coloured swirls of these Fabulous; it’s Friday, floral and Rainbow Beetroot confections. All of them have almost zero calories, but are a little feast for the soul.
HAPPY WEEKEND to all my friends!
POPPY, ‘Paeony Flemish Antique’. Huge blooms, straight from an ‘Old Master’ canvas. World Botanics seed.
Little Indian lanterns in soft, Neopolitan ice cream shades
Rainbow Beetroot, ‘Bull’s Blood Scarletta’, seed from Thompson and Morgan.
ZINNIA, ‘Swizzle Cherry and Ivory’. Seed from The Kew Collection for Thompson and Morgan.
Lovely photo’s as usual, so soothing and inspiring. Love that fabric underneath the beetroot salad too. Have a lovely weekend, Johanna
Thanks so much Johanna! The fabric is a Cath Kidston print. Are you familiar with her designs? Cath Kidston started off with a small, but beautiful little shop in London (which I used to visit) where she sold old fabrics, vintage eiderdowns, etc, etc. All the things we like, but the originals. Then she started to design new prints based on the old designs. I am glad that I knew her before her designs went global and so mass produced.
Still, she probably has made a serious amount of money…but I did love her first quirky little shop where I used to see her serving in the shop with her little dog by her side. x
How absolutely GORGEOUS – you’ve reminded me I must get some beetroot, lolt! 🙂
I LOVE Beetroot! I love growing it and eating it. And it is so easy to grow.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Happy weekend to you too. I love beets but not sure I’ve ever seen this kind.
Thanks so much Cynthia. Would you like to grow some? You could even grow some in a container or tub. Imagine that! Pretty soon you will be featuring them on your blog!
They are so pretty and a little more subtle in colour than the red varieties.
Beautiful gallery, love all the fitting colors and things, Karen. Have a wonderful week-end, regards Mitza
Thanks so much Mitza. I know how much you love flowers, colour and the beauty of nature too!
that’s true and I love decoration of houses inside. I’m collecting so many things, my flat looks like an antique shop, hehe. You have a really good taste and feeling for colors. Regards Mitza
The soothing power of Karen! Beautiful flowers and veg as always. I hope you are well my lovely xx
What a lovely comment! Thanks so much Sarah. Nature is such a source of inspiration for us both. Vanessa shared a lovely card of yours with a beautiful bird and a floral background. I LOVED it! x x
Beautiful photos. I have never had the acquaintence of the rainbow beet root.
Thanks so much Gretchen. I am so happy to have made the introduction! I love the beauty which can be found in these good natured root vegetables which bring us so much comfort in the winter months.
Gorgeous photos! What beautiful colors!
Thank you so much! I think here in England we need a good dose of colur, beauty and vitality in the winter months!
Well you are doing a good job of finding and sharing it!
Amazing photos and gorgeous colors, as usual, Karen! Always love to see more of your posts. Have a lovely weekend! xo ❤
Thanks so much Lucy. I have been trying to post more regularly, but now I am behind with my response! So sorry about the late reply.
I think just looking at flowers and colour makes us feel happier. I am so glad it works for you too.
You don’t need to apologize at all, Karen. We all have a busy life and we’re doing our best to keep the blog going as well. Thank you for making my day beautiful, with your amazing decorations! Hugs x
