This is the other piece of garden inspiration…my house doesn’t quite look like this. But I like how this is set out like a room.
Happy afternoon in Provence looking through Provençal Interiors books. Inspired by this garden for the mud patch outside my sitting room.
Finally, hyacinths! I love this time if year. There is so much to come and the flowers are all so scented. I think it’s nature’s way of getting us through these last weeks of winter.
lily of the valley are pretty high on my Love List, another flower that is strictly seasonal. I bought these last weekend at Columbia Road market and planted them in this footed bowl I got in Morocco over New Year. Rather pleased with it.
Casual Friday. On site at my place. Floors are going down. Monday the electrics are finished and the walling and ceiling goes in the kitchen.
I have just started reading Laetitia Maklouf’s book, Sweet Peas for Summer about how to create a garden in a year. The most amazing thing is that her starting point in the book is March. I mean how often does that happen!? Almost always with these sorts of things I find that I have either just missed the perfect time to plant, prune, do anything or it is months away.
Just found this Sam McEwen deck chair designed as part of a project to support the Royal Parks.
Of course this is from Martha Stewart, but isn’t this a really pretty new way to tying a bow on a present?
