Holly Brannigan  Making babies, pots and community, with my bestest friend.

Finally getting a moment to myself! Im sat at our bedroom window, darning Liam's moth eaten jumper and threading marigolds blown over in the garden, while watching the wild wind run across the water. It knocks the boats to and fro, the sound of their masts clanging is faint music just heard over the @woolful podcast. And there's dark chocolate so it's pretty much living the dream!

Happy birthday to my dear papa j, we all love you so much! 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Pretending we still live in rural idil and not back in a harsh wash of grey and litter. #lifeontheestate

Treehouse picnic and a little lesson in plant species for the girl who craves learning like I crave more of this countryside peace. (Off home tomorrow and my heart is breaking a little at the thought of returning to our detached house on the estate.

And for more nature loving check my stories! today I did my first ever story oh my. I put them off because I think I hate the self-indulgent snapchaty vibe of the idea, but then I just wanted to share photos of all the woodland textures! So we will see if it continues...

Scrambled eggs, honey on sourdough and grapefruit. Same breakfast, different home.
Housesitting for the best potter and carpenter duo in town sure is beautiful.

Oh sweet hands presenting the first radish (perhaps a little early.) The radish recently just a seed he and his sister poked into the soil, now so proudly pulled up with earthy finger tips, their fruit. Sliced finely and savoured with glee.
It's so glorious to see the understanding of where our food comes click in a little ones mind. And that wonder of having tended to a seedling, a plant and have it give you food, well that never really passes.

A beach all to himself

Still no doughnuts (we are now out of eggs!) but rhubarb flapjack is not something to turn your nose up at! Recipe courtesy of my favourite @liebwedd ! ❀

I love this town and these two.

A wholesome kinda day. Farmshop with ma, then treating ourselves to new plants from a sweet little stall by someone's house. Borage and foxgloves and ANOTHER tomato to squeeze in somewhere!!
And post from the best @sugarhouseworkshop, one of her incredible baking zines! I'm real excited to make honey and rhubarb doughnuts with more of our rhubarb. I chopped the fruit, but then a baby needed milk, then children need their teeth cleaned and stories read, backs stroked and lullabys sung, foreheads kissed and just one more sip of water...
So I'll make a mug of camomile and take a deep breath.

Dear summery Cornish hedgerows you spring flowers from nowhere and litter our dashboard with colour and pollen, we twist you into blooming hoops to wear in our hair, drape you heavily and languid from vases and bottles and jars and.. well anything! You are glorious!
