Well, I've just spent all morning trying to resist these squares of sticky deliciousness. Why I thought that scheduling a flapjack post two weeks into a self enforced month-long abstinence from grains and sugar was a good idea, I do not know. Especially when it's flapjack filled with rhubarb and coconut. But resist I did and the flapjack is now safely back in the freezer to be eaten another day. And, I'm drinking a mug of dandelion tea feeling virtuous having just enjoyed a large raw beetroot and red cabbage salad for lunch!
If however, you would like to try this delectable, sweet, sticky, sugar ladened, coconutty, rhubarb studded flapjack here's the link for the.
Throughout 2014 I'm looking at how I use colour in my photography ...
The pale blue plate was the inspiration for this month's colour palette. The light blue tones help to soften the vividness of the pink rhubarb, and the dots on the tea towel, yet still creates a bright and cheerful feel without detracting from the hot pink.
The tea towel was the closest match I had to the plate and actually works well by bringing in a pale turquoise blue which complements the purple blue of the plate. And of course, as luck would have it, it is also patterned with bright pink dots.
