...Early yesterday morning I indulged myself in a street of London blossom...🌸
( more #blossomspam in my Stories today ) #londonblossom

🌿✨...deciding when to throw flowers away is never very easy...

...this today just because it’s Spring and I always wanted to be a 1930’s MGM tap dancer!
Tap for the tapping sounds 🔊👟🎶
( btw, I made the trousers and jacket from Irish linen about 16 years ago, basing the jacket on my Granny’s spotty bolero from a couple of posts back...more deets in my Stories today )

...I love how he makes the most out of every ounce of warmth 💞

📍...When I was about 16 and really into vintage clothes my Granny said
“ I’ve got something for you, but you can only have it if you promise to wear it.” I didn’t know what to expect as she wasn’t a woman known for her clothes so when she presented me with a spotty 1930’s bolero I couldn’t believe it! I enthusiastically promised that of course I’d wear it and she gave me a coy smile and said “I wore it when I was courting”. I’ve always treasured the jacket and I often used to wear it with this dress in the 90’s; it became my ‘Lucky Outfit’ wearing it to lots of auditions including the one which got me into RADA in 1993.
The jacket is so precious and also quite fragile nowadays so I don’t tend to wear it much, but it did feel good to put on my ‘Lucky Outfit’ again this morning...
( Scroll across to see my Granny, Beryl, wearing it in her youth! )

Tulips are one of my all time favourite flowers; I always find their whole aesthetic journey from neat and tidy bud to theatrical petal drop endlessly fascinating...and then how they squeak is just a massive bonus! 🌿💗
( btw you can hear their squeak in my Stories today )

I find a mildewed window often provides the best filter...

How this morning looks...🌿

...collected and saved over many years, I love how my grandparents, parents and my son have all held and played most of these cards 🃏♥️

...the light in Cornwall is a constant source of love, particularly immediately after heavy rain 💦💙

✨💛...Thank you so much for all your lovely messages about my daffodil reflections pictures yesterday!
I love taking slightly more abstract pictures and so your messages really encouraged me to create this multi exposure where I’ve used two of the images which I put on my Stories yesterday plus some moving footage of the reflections...🌿💧

✨I absolutely love the daffodil fields in Cornwall at this time of year! 🌿
(...you can have a swipe through these pics and I’ve also put lots more on my Stories today including a little film )
