Board#66: Pinstripes & Bikes

As we zoom at a ridiculous pace towards September (seriously it's cruel how time speeds up as you get older!) I'm starting to dream of spring blossoms, the scent of a freshly mown lawn and the sun on my face - the scent of Jonquils wafting from my lounge could have something to do with it - thanks to a lovely surprise delivery yesterday! This board is another that could fit in perfectly mid-season, between summer and winter. Red and green can have the tendency to look Christmassy but not when the green is a fresh chartreuse green, and with the grey in this to anchor it a little, I think it's a winning combination. Lends itself to a whimsical, fun look. What do you think - likey or no likey?

Had to look up Jonquils to see if it was the same worldwide... FYI also known as Narcissus... now you know!
