Earthly Delights: GREEN. The February Issue

A brief intro for you who stumble upon this series for the first time: Sandy from Confiture de Vivre and myself started publishing Earthly Delights beginning last summer playing around with what we are best at. We decide on one common theme styling and cooking our interpretations without knowing from each other the final result. This month we wanted to feature ‘Green’.
Sandy:  Though we had a mild winter this year, I am longing for spring. Craving for trees carrying green leaves again, my garden in full bloom and a few green treats on the plate. Green herbs is pure taste, genuine and quite intensive. That’s why you won’t need much more on a slice of bread. It pleases the eye and helps me too enduring the very few last grey weeks.

Gudy: I have spent part of the winter in Germany and loved the snow scenery I was lucky to get in January. But now back, the days start getting longer and there are already first signs of spring after an unusual mild winter. I am contenting myself for now with my birdcage or should I say –  domestic greenhouse? But yes, so much looking forward to real upcoming spring days!

  1. You couldn’t pick a better theme to invite Spring to come. Gudy I love how you use the cage (is it the Zara Home one? I once saw it in the shop but wasn’t too sure if it fitted at home … love the idea of using it as an open greenhouse :-) Thank you ladies for this green wake up this morning. Have you both a lovely day xx

  2. Such a pretty spring theme! Eating & styling greens, it looks just wonderful Sandy & Gudy! A few weeks ago I had these same flowers at home from your second image, Gudy, and was surprised by their smell. Unfortunate that yours didn’t smell at all, but maybe your florist knows why. It’s worth finding out, because they release a lovely perfume. Wish you both a nice green week! xx

  3. Gudy!
    Esa jaula-invernadero es magia pura. Me transporta a la pelicula “Grandes Esperanzas”, la has visto? Todo es verde, los jardines, el vestuario, la escenografía, todo, magia pura!

    Un guiño a la optimista primavera!Bien!

    Un abrazo!

  4. I really look forward to your ED series Sandy and Gudy-always such beautiful shots and just great to get the alternative takes on one subject. Your crostini look delicious Sandy and Gudy-I really love birdcages with plants! xx

  5. Great images ladies and very apt for this time of year. Greens are so important (all year round) but they come into their own over spring and summer.

    I miss my herb garden so stocked up on some kitchen window sill ones. Cooking without herbs is not possible:-)

    Loving the cage (domestic greenhouse).

    Thank you x
