Tarragon Glory and Quinces…

Last month was a synchronicity of colour.

I painted my bathroom in a DULUX colour called Tarragon Glory 3. Found during a late night at B+Q moment where I just had to choose something there-and-then. Something warm,bright, hot and happening with a bit of a different slant for a bathroom. This is an astonishing colour. I never thought I would find a colour that was ‘hot’ and ‘green’ at the same time. This is a truly deep, acidic, almost mustard green if you can imagine such a thing. It glows with the warmest heat at night with the bathroom light and during the day it recedes and quietly resonates. A few days later I saw a row of quinces, freshly picked, lined up on a shelf. A softer, more yellow variation of a similar shade. It floats on the eye with a satin finish.

We should all use this colour more in our lives.

    Sweetie, My naturopath here in Hudson used a tincture of Quince to heal me of Candida albicans years ago. I used it for a few weeks, and all the symptoms vanished. Magic! Dad
