I saw my first humpback whale this afternoon! My colleague and nature-know-it-all Paul drove me at lightning speed from my office with ten seconds notice and I vaulted over a clifftop fence in skirt and heels, speared my hand on the wire in the process, slithering as fast as I could slither down the banks in tights after abandoning my shoes in the grass and everything was worth it!! 🐋✨DR and I took our dinner to the cliffs tonight to have another look for it! #lovewhereyoulive

Last night and a long-overdue catchup with a lovely friend, a sunset going from apricot to raspberry ripple as the streetlights twinkled on, the first night of the year it's felt warm enough to trust it. @stephanielwilliams 💜

We made it to our first stop last night and after checking into our creepy hotel (see stories lol) we headed across the street to a brewery that makes some of our favorite beers we enjoy back home. It’s housed in the old Wonder Bread building and is awesome. Today we’re headed further east to the bluffs of the Mississippi for more good beer, food and nature. Onward!

Isn’t nature just glorious?
.
I’ve just been for a wander around the garden, and after what seems like an eternity of cold winds, it’s a real joy to feel the warmth of the sun once more.
.
I hope that one day, I might have my own garden to enjoy and tend to (rather than that of my parents, lovely as it is).
.
I’m now off into Birmingham @thsh_birmingham for this afternoon’s performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, always a #GoodFriday treat.

Katie, one of our young crofters, welcoming a new addition to the community. New life is springing up all over the Estate. Wishing you all a Happy Easter.
Thanks to Rachel Mackenzie for this week’s beautiful #fridayphoto.
Lots of other animal babies on our stories.

Halfway along his walk the little dog found a beetle. It was small and black and shiny. He studied the beetle for a long time; it was a very interesting beetle. He thought about befriending it, but then he had a better idea: the little dog ate the beetle. "No!" said his mum. "Pippin spit it out!" But he did not spit it out.  It was crunchy and good. 🌿

Around this time last year Lara and I were going to lots of @nationalgardenscheme properties to see the blooms and this little gem of a garden was my favourite! We haven’t been to any this year (yet!) as the Peak District is always calling us but it’s so worth visiting these places if you can 💚 We’re headed to Cornwall on Sunday for a little retreat to nature. I’m very excited to be by the sea once more! Have you been to Cornwall? Any suggestions? #adventureawaits #nationalgardenscheme #ig_naturelovers #quietinthewild #thewildnesstonic #livewildbefree #whimsicalwonderfulwild #amomentofwonder #shyinnature #ig_nature_naturally #momentsofmine #morigirl #bloomandgrow #seekdiscovercreate #aseasonalyear #creativecountryside #theinvisiblefemme #globalgaygirlgang

That’s a nice view! This is one of windows in the watchtower on the Lunna Estate.⠀
•⠀
Originally built as a folly, it was later used by lairds as a watchtower to preside over the estate at Lunna. Nowadays, a nice little walk to enjoy views across the Lunna peninsula.⠀

I’m still at work this weekend but being able to ride in the daylight in the evenings means it isn’t so bad. I’m also off to Venice next week so I really can’t complain too much!

Do you have any plans for the long weekend?

I made a new plant acquaintance last weekend: Podophyllum peltatum, commonly known as the Mayapple.  Interestingly, the only other species of this genus occurs in Asia.  There was something sort of ominous in the appearance of this plant when I happened across it.  Perhaps it was the way these tiny umbrellas stood almost perfectly erect and still, each on its single stalk, in a large colony stretching back into the dark, distant wood.  I later learned that they are indeed poisonous and can easily spread aggressively, excluding other plants.

I know, I know. I'm so lucky to have this as one of my local swims.  This was swim number 2 of the day and utterly idyllic. The sea is definitely warmer when the sun has been out all day and the swims are longer. #saltonmyskin

And, we're home. We had such a great time in Wales celebrating Lyra's birthday but I'm glad to be home. Tonight is for pizza, game of thrones (managed to avoid spoilers so far), and celebrating 5 years of parenting. Go us!

Despite working all day today, this Thursday felt like a Friday. And tomorrow is Good Friday so it’s smiles all round!

Unrelated... Seagulls on the wing at the beach are like buses... there are none for ages and then when you walk away, they all make a grand entrance. I gave myself neck ache waiting for this one to fly back into frame... 🕊

The most beautiful, bright yellow flower with the most unfitting, horrible name, don't you think? The name "rapeseed" actually comes, not from a sinister source, but from the Latin word for turnip, "rapa" or "rapum". Still, I wish they'd rename it something befitting of its beauty. To me, they're the Golden Sunshine Flowers. The sight of fields absolutely bursting with sunshine even on the greyest of days is enough to bring anyone joy! They make me want to run barefoot through the fields in a floaty white dress, cartwheeling and dancing and relishing in the joy of that bright, happy colour. Oh, and give me five minutes and I'll be barefoot and scampering up that tree for a better view of the yellow ocean below! 🌻🌼✨

I heard a feature on the radio this afternoon that Moray Council are planning to stop the mowing of grass and verges in their care.  Partly for budgetary reasons, but mostly (I like to be optimistic) to encourage wild flowers and the return of bees and insects.  A local beekeeper was talking about how, when we remove the ‘weeds’ from our grassy areas, we are in effect creating ‘green deserts’, devoid of insect life.  With bees in rapid decline, I wonder, can we attempt to reframe our perspective on these wild flowers – wild garlic, dandelions, celandines, and the like – which might de-prettify our gardens, but provide essential food for those beautiful creatures on whom we depend? ~

I was going to write a caption to tie in with the blog post I wrote yesterday. But, actually, I want to write about something different instead.
.
This morning has been bloody difficult. One of my children is prone to dark moods that hang like storm clouds over us all. Waiting to break. We try to teach positive thinking and have had some success with the @happyselfjournal. But this morning was hard. With all of us stuffed in the house together, raw emotions pinging back and forth. .
I did the work. I stayed calm. Tried not to use words that would make things worse. Or linger like wounds to be licked later on. I modelled calm and kindness, even though I felt the polar opposites in my gut. And, as I had hoped, it all blew over within a couple of hours. Both kids skipping off to the cinema with grandparents. The whole hell of this morning forgotten.
.
Except not by me. It's still here in the pit of my stomach. Churning and keeping me off kilter. So, while I can be pleased that I modelled calm and kind for them this morning, I realise that they're showing me how to do forgiveness and moving on. Only, I'm not so quick a pupil. I'm just grateful I actually spotted the lesson. So now I can work at what I need to learn. .
And, in a roundabout way, I guess my (very short) blog post this week is about small ones, and what they can teach us. It's a quicky, I promise. Link in bio 🙂

У всякого места есть свое предназначение. Есть места, подходящие для радости, и места, подходящие для страданий. И ни в коем случае нельзя подменять одни другими. Беда в том, что люди давно разучились видеть очевидное. Ничего не чувствуют, ничего не понимают. И ведут себя как слоны🐘🌸

‘Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful’

We’ve had the most relaxing few days in Australia, I can’t believe I’m here! We’ve had the best food and wine, walked the pooch on stunning trails and seen amazing surf 🌊 The weather is on the up soon, so I’m looking forward to kayaking, snorkelling and soaking up the sunshine next 😎

About a month ago I got an impulse, an idea to create a Kundalini Yoga for Entrepreneurs video lessons. I have been a teacher for past 9 years.
*
And then I procrastinated ...
*
Till I had an honest conversation with myself, why I don’t feel happy and fulfilled in life.
*

Realising it, I booked videographer next day ! I must say, I felt nervous like a schoolgirl after I hanged the phone.

But it’s done !!! And the videos to motivate and support you, on your journey are coming soon !

About a month ago I got an impulse, an idea to create a Kundalini Yoga for Entrepreneurs video lessons. I have been a teacher for past 9 years.
*
And then I procrastinated ...
*
Till I had an honest conversation with myself, why I don’t feel happy and fulfilled in life.

as for the purpose

there is none,
it is simply
one of those gorgeous things
that was made

to do what it does perfectly
and to last,
as almost nothing does,
almost forever. - Mary Oliver

I’ve been reading Mary Oliver a lot—
and there are so many passages that I want tattooed on my skin, so that they would stay with me until the end, like good poetry should. Sometimes I think that if I was to bare my core to someone else, if I was to show my naked and vulnerable self to another human being, it would mostly be composed of words that made me stop and gasp and say ‘yes, it’s true, that’s what I feel and I did not know that it could be poetic, so thank you, thank you for making me understand that nothing is mundane when the right words are used’.

I will never stop feeling equally excited and awestruck when I meet these big creatures. It's like a peek into a parallel world, like when I see the dorsal fin of black dolphins in the bay. What can I do but stand still and watch for as ever long they allow me to before they decide the meeting is over and disappear. When do you feel like you sometimes get a special peek into the natural world that you might not see or notice every day? 💚

It’s peat season here in Shetland. Lots of people are heading to the hill to cut (cast) their peat. These peats have been ‘raised’(built into pyramids for drying).
•⠀
I’ll be heading to the hill for a day soon. Mother has challenged me to a day in the peat hill for the Challenge the Editor feature of @shetland_life (the local lifestyle magazine I edit).⠀I think she just wants a day of free labour... •⠀
Two things to complete the paet hill experience: ✔️ A red can (McEwans export)
✔️ A picnic
•⠀
Yes @houlnastoura , I’m back to posting first thing in the morning 😅⠀

Day 16/100 #100leavesproject
.
On my workbench yesterday. The leaves I found on the roadside growing at the edge of Wimbledon Common on my way cycling to the studio. The flame shaped leaves with the little bright purple flowers are commonly known as the green alkanet or less commonly as Pentaglottis sempervirens. The other leaves are cow parsley.
.
I’m 16 days into #the100dayproject2019 I committed to and I feel part of me is excited by the challenge and appreciates all the attention and support I receive each day, while another side of me resists the idea that its a continuous thing for another 84 days! I struggle with myself quite a bit. Freedom plays an important role in my art practice, but so does limitations. Balancing these two are my biggest challenge. I feel limiting to select a single leaf each day really brings into focus what speaks to me on a day to day basis. Also, finding the freedom with that aim each day and explore the seasons through leaves brings me so much joy. I love the discussions that unfolded over the past two weeks when I was asking about identifying leaves from buds and as they come into leaf. Tracing the growth of leaves on particular trees has never before been such a consistent focus, for which I’m grateful. I shall persevere with this and continue to seek joy in my days while doing so.
.
If anyone else is doing a #the100dayproject this year or did in the past or participated in similar longer challenges I would love to hear from you. Please do share how you are managing or managed with such undertaking. Any words of advice you may have would be gratefully received.
.
Also, as today’s theme with the #springhashtagchallenge is ‘breathe’ and I feel it’s so relevant as that’s exactly what I’m seeking, the space to breathe in between.

Our arbor is built! We built this out of cedar, and it smelled soooo good when Levi cut the wood. Kiwi and zuchinni vines will grow up the sides soon and create a cool canopy we can rest under for shade in the summer. Over the past couple weeks we have been working hard to plant our mini orchard and garden. We only have a quarter of an acre here, but we want to squeeze in all of the vegetation we can!
. 
Here is the master list of everything we have planted since we’ve moved in!
-Cherry trees (2)
-Asian pear trees (2)
-Persimmon trees (3)
-Haskap berry bushes (5)
-Strawberry plants (3)
-Red Raspberry bushes (5)
-Kiwi plants (3)
-Giant tulips (150 bulbs)
-Sunflowers
-Green Giant Arborvitae (14)

Soon we will plant our tomatoes, basil, peppers, butternut squash, beets, and zucchini!

This is all so new to me and I'm in awe. I've never been this close to life growing before (in terms of plants). However, my husband grew up homesteading and is just as entranced... So maybe the awe won't go away?? 😋
. 
Also, I begged him to let me remove those orange stakes for  a photo. He said no. So there they are. Our little orange stakes forever memorialized 😀 (They mark where they kiwi plants are)

I'm a big fan of living a life that's full of purpose and meaning. Easier said than done, of course. But we can always keep working toward those goals as long as we're still breathing.⠀
.⠀
We're really lucky to live when we do. Yes, there is disaster, hate, and lots of hurt out there in the world staring us down. But we live in a time when we can actually do something about it. ⠀
.⠀
I'll be the first person to say I love and loathe technology, the internet, and social media. It's brought us some annoying behaviors and tragic problems. But it's also opened up a whole new way of spreading messages, creating coalitions and communities, being an introverted activist... and following our callings!⠀
.⠀
Now just about anyone can start a racial justice awareness campaign, learn how to craft plant medicine, and find an audience for changing paradigms. We really can be freed from corporate desks if we want to be. Or work on our callings after work so that our day jobs feel more balanced.⠀
.⠀
We're allowed to be bigger, brighter, and more influential. And learn, build bridges, and create real interactions in our communities. We can find people who see the world the way we do, then collaborate.⠀
.⠀
It's not all rainbows and roses. But we can intentionally create change in ways we never could in the past.⠀
.⠀
What calling has been tugging on your heart lately?

{When I am among the trees...
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily. ~Mary Oliver}
.
Walking in our nearby woods, I heard the girls’ old woodland group teacher singing to her tiny followers about collecting catkins on a springtime morning. It led me along a memory trip of the streams and dens and clearings and tree swings and log piles and great roots of old fallen trees, and tree friends my little sprites have climbed and inhabited, and the maypoles and fires we have danced around here. Remembering the times I have needed the woods too, when I have taken my own storms or sadness to the trees and the spaces between them, where the overwhelm ebbs away and the calm seeps into my soul. Amid thoughts of moving to pastures new, I’m thankful for how much these woods have held me and watched us grow... 🌳

What do you think of this poem? Qué pensás de este poema? 
Gone out onto the terrace to take the clothes down
from the line
Gone drunk on the deep blue of the sky

Gone, the holy dirtful Eating always comes before the Knowing,
the angel bids us farewell
the angel bids us farewell 
Gone the instant the eyes have seen
the breath, marveled
the body, shivered in the wind

An eternity away, here, close, 
gone, gone,  receding

Must share more of my work. Must work with @rachelperu1 because her body confidence is contagious ❤️Must get clothes packed before we set off to Bath. There’s always a to-do a list full of dirty clothes, ambition and everything social. Oh, and ‘health' rates fairly high with sleep, veg and steps on Fitbit. My head is so jam-packed with plans, goals, and birthdays that most of the time, I get it wrong. But when I get solo time with my camera, modern day stress thankfully f*cks off and all I need to do is take a good picture. The simplicity of that soothes me - it’s my medicine to counteract life. In these images, there’s nothing we need to do or remember - we can just enjoy being creative and in the moment. Amen to that! What’s in your toolbox to destress? 🧰 🔧

It's hard to get away from the farm but sometimes a step back is necessary in order to breathe, assess & reassess, and gain new pespectives. The weather was so beautiful today that this is exactly what we did : went to the coast which is only a short drive away and came back later feeling happy & refreshed 😎😁 What do you do when you need to step back from work or everyday life? And does anyone else know this part of the coast path near Hope Cove? .
Pour nous, prendre du repos et du recul nécessite de quitter la ferme, même sans forcément aller bien loin ; vu le temps magnifique aujourd’hui c'est exactement ce que nous avons fait en allant nous promener sur la côte 😎😁 Et vous, que faites vous quand vous avez besoin de recul dans votre boulot ou votre vie?

Long, floaty dresses and curly hair always make me feel a little bit of that Pre-Raphaelite magic 🌿🌙✨ I've used up all my creative energy this week on different projects, but promise I'll be back with pretty words soon! But right now, I just think I need a huge mug of tea, some candles and a good book. Right now I'm reading "Chocolat" by Joanne Harris! What are you guys reading? Sending love and magic and all the good vibes 🌻🌸🌙✨

There are many things I love about spring, but it’s not my favourite season for photography. I’m most inspired by dark skies and moody landscapes and love everything that helps me convey a sense of magic and mystery in my pictures. So when the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming and the only thing marring the sky is a puffy cloud, I really struggle to take the kind of images that most speak to my soul. But I have been trying to seek out places and moments that give me the opportunity to capture images that convey that feeling of magic and mystery, while also showcasing the things that make spring so special. And that’s really what honing in your photography style is all about: To identify the underlying themes of your photography and to look for ways to work them into your images, no matter what the season or the subject is. ⁣
🌸⁣
So that’s how this image came about: When I first came by this place right in the middle of the city and next to a busy street, I was immediately swept away into the world of fairytales and knights in shining armor - and because of that, the image still feels true to my style, even though the colours are a lot more vibrant and warm than is usual for me.⁣
✨⁣
Do you feel easily inspired to take photographs in spring or do you prefer the winter like me? ⁣

AD - press trip | As you might have seen on Stories, Chris and I spent last weekend exploring the magical Forest of Dean and Wye Valley with @deanwyetourism. It’s only 45 minutes from Bristol yet it feels a world away from city hustle and bustle - and there’s so much to see and do! I’ll have more from the trip soon, but in the meantime here’s a peek at ‘The Little House’ at @wyelets, where we stayed. It’s a beautiful little cabin for two with simple, rustic interiors, a garden with a firepit and a wonderfully peaceful setting. We spent lazy evenings in front of the wood-burner, fell asleep to total silence, awoke to birdsong all around, and watched squirrels and robins as we ate our breakfast - perfect! #MyForestofDean #deanwye

🎶Listen to the sweet white crowned sparrow sing its heart out! Hear that trill at the end? Lovely! The song of the white crowned sparrow is one of the most studied sounds in all animal behavior. The males are the singers in this species with only rare female performances. 😊💕🎶
