MOST RECENT

A bird song, sunshine and dew covered morning. We have a lot of flowers to pick and hand-ties to make but it is lovely to be still and quiet and to listen to the garden waking up and to be grateful for this beautiful day. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday 🌿🌿🌿 #astillmoment #thegoodlife #gratitude #greenhouselove

I realise I’ve been remiss in keeping up to date with my #fridayfurtherreading posts, and now I inevitably have a stack of wonderful posts I want to share with you.
🌸
First, and perhaps most relevant to this picture, @jannelford has written a post about how to take floral photos inspired by the Dutch Masters. I have fallen in love with this type of photography (partly as a result of @goldfinchelson’s wonderful #newrenaissance portraits and still lifes) and it was fascinating to read Janne’s insights.
🌸
I really enjoyed @herinternest ‘s 20 May post on hashtag challenges as a way to reach new followers and friends – it’s not just about the Weekend Hashtag Project, but also covers some of the other challenges out there. Barbora has recently launched her own, #stepoutforsummer, and I’m also excited about #mycreativesummer_letscelebrate, the first in a series of summer challenges being hosted by @sienna.and.i, @tarraherron_photography, @valerielovesheiko, @alexandriaslens, @allthatisshe, @bookishbronte, @carolyn_mara, @kweilz, @lauries_little_ones, and @pattischmidt. And @sophiewarrensmith and I are going to be launching @summer_inbloom at some point – I will keep you posted.
🌸
One of Barbora’s insights is that we should always stick to our own aesthetic when entering a challenge. Of course, that requires you to have a sure grasp of your personal aesthetic in the first place. I am very excited to be starting @c_colli ‘s course on Visual Storytelling and have just invested in a new binder, glitter pens and washi tape to start my creative exploration (this is all recommended in the course, but I never need much encouragement to buy new stationery.
🌸
For anyone not doing the course, but interested in what Cristina has to say, I would recommend her recent posts on Instagram, engagement and creativity. She is incredibly thoughtful and perceptive, and her blog posts are always a treat to read. Other posts on creativity which I enjoyed this week included @kutovakika’s “Listen to your inner creative desires and stop comparing” and @itsmariekenny on “Trusting your Inner Compass”.

Starting the week Italian style with super delicious British made biscotti @greatbritishbiscotti , super strong espresso and slowly getting in the mood for work. Exciting new projects and very yummy indeed are coming my way! How is your Monday treating you?

The pictures you can capture with an awesome phone on the streets of London... #whpshine in action. Spot the photographer in the reflection ;) Thanks for the experience @ThreeUK @HuaweiMobileUK the P20 is incredible!

~ ~ It’s been a while since I’ve posted but at last a little window of time to finally be home and to just sit in the garden and enjoy some peace and tranquility! Surrounded by the first of the roses and vases of beautiful peonies which I couldn’t resist buying on my way home 😊 🌸.. is absolute bliss!

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks with Mum who’s been in and out of hospital - the last time after her legs gave out finding her in a heap on the kitchen floor unable to move.
.
I am so, so grateful to our NHS 🙏They responded within 10 minutes of calling for an ambulance and have been absolutely brilliant throughout. Considering how stretched and under funded this service is the level of care and compassion they gave to Mum has been second to none. .
So a big shout out for our NHS and to all you beautiful peeps. I’ve checked in when I could and been seeing your lovely photos, hearing all your news which has really kept me going and made me smile a lot especially when it didn’t look good….. thank you 🤗😘
.
Now for some chill out time and so looking forward to seeing my husband tonight 💕 💕Have a beautiful weekend 🙏☀️🌸💕 #momentsofmine

Bit of smut
Still too dark
To see my butt"

Been wanting to do this for a couple weeks 🕯
Noticed how magical it looked just passing by nude one night

Imagine how this picture will look as a wallpaper! I can't stop thinking about it... ♥

Brought my coffee and a small boy out in the garden this morning - not as restful a start as I prefer, but should set us both up nicely for the day ahead. Already pretty warm out here!
So who remembers when I tried to grow a new blog header? Never did get the picture I wanted but the irises are still gorgeous :) #SharingHappySquares #bloggers #savouringmay #fb
