I have been busy giving the kitchen a fresh coat of white paint. The crisp bright white with the lovely weather reminded me of Summer days when the fields and roadsides are a mass of bold ox-eye daisies, bobbing and dancing in the wind. Childhood memories of sitting on the grass, pulling off the petals chanting " He loves me, he loves me not".
