We finished painting them over the weekend and I think they’re OK. They’re pretty dazzling when the sun’s out, but brighten up a dull grey day like today no end. We just need a little round cedar coffee table, which will stay resolutely natural in colour.
It’s going to be interesting to see how they go with the garden colour scheme as it develops over the year. The yellow of the daffs will fade away and be replaced by lots of purple and chocolate plants enlivened with splashes of hot pink, red and orange. Though next year I may avoid such very pink tulips.
