Roses and Ribbons

Oh we've just peeped out from the Dovecote and the sun is shining! We're planning to sneak out from the stockroom and do a spot of gardening. Maybe some jaunty red geraniums like the one in the picture, but then we'd have to dig out our matching jaunty red watering can, fork and trowel... not to mention our yellow sun hats with jaunty red ribbon to match our sunflower yellow dress with red trim... sounds like a good idea, as long as our aprons stay nice and starched.
Our knees would get awfully muddy in a dress that short, just as well there would be nobody around to see us. What's your favourite? Geraniums and gingham? Daisies and dungarees? Tulips and tunics? Poppies and paisleys or sunflowers and smocks?
