I'm a city girl at heart. The countryside scares me, those big open spaces, the silence, the roadkill, the lack of off-licences, curry houses and charity shops....give me the great urban metropolis any day of the week.
I do endeavour to be green and I'm posing in our vegetable patch today. Can you see our Brussels sprouts, purple sprouting broccoli and runner beans peeking out of the soil?
Just don't let me catch sight of a slug or I'll abandon my trowel and run for cover.
Rural-phobic I may be but I don't object to some bucolic clothing. These gorgeous photographs were part of an article in last weekend's Guardian celebrating the photographic talents of Jane, daughter of Laura Ashley.
Jane used her friends as models and her tremendous skill helped catapult her parent's moderately succesful clothing range into a worldwide phenomonem.
