Longing to feel the wind in my hair and the sun on my face after spending the entire morning looking at this dreamy photo shoot.

Ms. Green Fingers

Although not much of an outdoor person, after seeing stylist Eva Lindh’s latest shoot I suddenly developed this strange urge to get my hands dirty and “potter” about in the garden this afternoon.

Someday when I have more time on my hands I shall keep myself a beautiful garden and be known as Ms. Green Fingers… until then I am content just looking at these inspiring pictures. Click here to see more.

What about you, do you enjoy gardening?

Hello Lovelies

Hello, hello! I’m finally back after a scandalously long and leisurely holiday. Spent much of my time going on long drives, reading, taking impromptu afternoon siestas and basking in some well deserved me time!

It’s nice to put your feet up every once in a while, isn’t it?

A million thank yous for your regular visits and love. It is so lovely to be back and reconnect with all you beautiful people!
