A whale sits
just below the surface

feels the waves begin to calm
along his back.

Sunday night weavings while meandering down memory lane. Dear Maine, one day, I'll call you home. Simultaneously feeling very grateful that my current state of being is less FOMO and more JOMO (fear of missing out vs joy of missing out, respectively).

We had a great time exploring RHS Rosemoor today in the sunshine! Little one seemed to enjoy her first garden visit and was very happy for the whole 5 and a half hours we were there! She especially loved all of the water features and was fascinated by the moving water!

Found these pretty lobelia growing along the Susquehanna River today. Our camping trip was great despite the brief, late night rain shower. I love falling asleep in a tent when it's raining. We also found and ate some paw paw fruit on one of the trails. 🌲🌟

"Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day." Emily Bronte

Мене покинуло натхнення 🤷🏼‍♀️
Відчуття «вигорання» чи як правильно назвати?
⠀
В мене так буває 🤔 спочатку море ідей для втілення, швидкий старт їх реалізації, потім нові ідеї, і ще, і ще...а потім бац🙈😱
все стоїть.
⠀
Ще помітила, коли багато зйомок по роботі, то на фото для себе не вистачає ні часу, ні сил 🙄
⠀
Як з цим боротися?
Мені допомагають нові локації, образи, подорожі❤️
Часто можу побачити гарну місцину і в голові складається пазл готової картинки. І тоді, я знову загоряюсь🔥

In #Shetland you will find an amazing natural feature called a tombolo which is a sandbar created from waves thrashing in two opposite directions. This one is 500 metres long and is in the South Mainland at St Ninian’s Isle.

The river was beautiful for our Sunday morning walk this weekend. Since we started trying out new Petits Filous New Mess Free Drinkable yoghurt with a sports cap, I have been encouraging the children to choose them for outdoor snacks.

Vanilla flavour is Biggest's absolute favourite (though they come in strawberry too) and they are so easy to take out and about. They are also great for snacks in the car – no chance of unpleasant spills! They are definitely a hit AND they have calcium and vitamin D to support healthy bone development with no artificial flavourings!

This shot took ages to get. It was a combination of other visitors getting in the way, and my need to get the slats on the window perfectly parallel with the flower stem. I think I almost got there in the end lol.

The medieval Divinty School, Oxford. Directly below The Bodleian Library and the oldest surving purpose-built building for university use.
I adore how Headington stone reflects golden light. Used to build meany of the Oxford colleges and the city walls.

i've never had the luxury of studio time before, (in a historic building with arched ceilings and white washed walls, no less 😍) and today after attending a flea market and strolling through a medici palace, I made my way to school, and ended up sitting quietly in the printmaking studio all alone, finishing the first journal I've ever bound (a merry disaster).as I didn't have the inside paper to cover the messy book cloth and cover paper, I decopaged pictures from outdated florentine magazines to use instead. I may not be much of a bookbinder, but I'm quite adequate at making quirky collages. looking at the front inside cover I knew it needed a wee bit of text, and I was delighted and humored to find and cut out the words 'the fiasco!' and place them inside the cover. my first book & week of studio classes: a fiasco: also, a little hint of e. m. forster & room with a view humor. // my point is, I'm always so awfully terrified of making a mess. especially, in public. but i'll be honest. there's been several fiascos while I've been here in florence, and part of why I've had fiascos is I'm afraid to look messy in front of people. the Lord is teaching me a whole lot, and I know part of it is letting go of the ragged edges tightly crumpled in my hands, and just letting them be seen. 
so if you need the reminder friend: the show often goes wrong. be a fiasco, and never mind the crooked edges.

I have a feeling that had I not been spending the day clearing out garages/garden sheds/cupboards... Sunday might have looked something like this...
.

Next weekend though, this place will be right on my doorstep rather than a traffic-filled hour or so’s drive away and I can’t tell you how unbelievably excited I am to be able to say that... 👏👏👏
.

What a gorgeous weekend though! Hope everyone’s enjoyed the beautiful September sunshine!! ☀️✨💛

I’m on the hunt for ethical, sustainable & slow knitwear brands - does anyone have any tips?

All of my knitwear is from the high street, and I’d like to invest in a jumper that I’ll love for years to come. I have plenty of tips for slow and sustainable brands when it comes to dresses, jumpsuits and the like but knitwear is eluding me. .

@babaa @lenvers_fashion & @theknottyones are already on my list. If you have any recommendations let me know - I’m thinking of putting together a blog post with all my findings.

After the most beautiful women’s circle I’ve ever attended last night, it’s been so nice to be chilled on the beach with cacao. Feeling very grateful today 🙏

👉 Follow the satnav and it'll lead you down country roads that look like they lead straight to the point of no return. Dun, duun, duuun.
When, in reality, all they do is connect sleepy little villages. Suspiciously devoid of people. Like the zombie apocalypse has swept through them. Dun, duun, duuun.
Seriously, though. Had a cracking weekend. No getting lost in the woods. No zombie apocalypse. (Always a plus.) Just good times with good people.

Our walk was a bit damp this morning, but it’s always worth it. Its just as nice in the mist as in the sun - sometimes even nicer! 🌊

Dreaming vision _ a spasso per il giardino rimiro le brillanti echinacee in fiore. Nonostante i colori siano ancora brillanti, è come se scorgessi da lungi l'incedere lento della pigra stagione con il suo siderale abbraccio. Che dire?

One of the many post-natural, human-marked, scarred landscapes I spied on the Kintyre Peninsula. Somehow, the poles and pylons and wires crossing the land seem to enhance its story, beauty and wildness.

Premiers jours de notre voyage en Namibie sur les traces de trois guépards : un moment unique, inoubliable 😍 grâce à la superbe politique de conservation de la vie sauvage de la réserve @erindinamibia 👏🏻 qui a permis à Savannah de se rétablir et de donner naissance à deux bébés guépards, désormais prêts à quitter le nid.

We’re off to visit RHS Rosemoor today! Of all the RHS gardens I’ve only ever visited Wisley, so I am really excited to see what Rosemoor has to offer! We are making it our mission to visit more gardens in the U.K.- there are so many beautiful botanical places right on our doorstep (and even more a couple of hours drive away!) that we have been meaning to go to for years and just have never got around to visiting yet. While our little one is very happy to sit in her pram and look around we thought we need to make the most of it- I’m sure next summer will be very different when she can walk!!.
.
What is your favourite garden to visit in the U.K.? Where should be next on my list?

We don’t have a lot of sand on the beaches we use for Beach School here in East Kent, but when it appears with the ebbing tide it is always a huge draw for our participants. And rightly so - sand is an absolutely glorious learning material. No preparation required, just get stuck in. .
.
Playing with sand is completely open-ended -  the child determines the direction and path of their own play. There is no right way to use it, so sand invites participation, collaboration and provokes the imagination. Sand play promotes physical development - gross muscle skills can develop through digging, pouring, sifting and scooping. Eye-hand coordination and small muscle control can develop as children learn to manipulate the sand with hands or with tools (at Beach School we just use steel kitchen utensils and spades from the @rnli_walmer shop, nothing expensive or fancy). It can also provide a soothing sensory experience for many, try letting it slowly trickle through your fingers. .
.
We’re exceptionally lucky to have a setting where our sand play area is completely provided by nature. We celebrate the excavators, architects, engineers and builders it effortlessly creates. But sand play can be incorporated almost anywhere. I have so much gratitude for its limitless potential for learning.

All my life I've always come back to one thing,
my need to feel free and the need to feel the breeze,
the ride provides a freedom this gypsy needs,
where every road is another blessed memory,
a new experience to carry inside my journey,
a sense of belonging to a familiar tribe,
a brotherhood that goes beyond a bloodline .

We're having another late burst of summer this weekend, the sunlight hitting the abundant hedgerows is giving the most amazing display of colour, especially against the bright blue sky. I've managed to get out for a couple of walks along the local lanes in the last few days and it's been interesting to see how the crop of berries varies so much from place to place. The elderberries were totally finished when I visited my in-laws, although there are still quite a few about at home.

We're having another late burst of summer this weekend, the sunlight hitting the abundant hedgerows is giving the most amazing display of colour, especially against the bright blue sky. I've managed to get out for a couple of walks along the local lanes in the last few days and it's been interesting to see how the crop of berries varies so much from place to place. The elderberries were totally finished when I visited my in-laws, although there are still quite a few about at home. Whereas we have hardly any hazelnuts and the hedgerows near them were bursting with them 💕

I'd love to be able to pick up my house, and place it anywhere I want! Ideally it would also have a warm, roaring fire inside to dry off wet boots and socks. ⁣

If you could easily pick up your home and place it anywhere, where would that be? 🏡 😊 ⁣

Ps. In hindsight, Greta and I should have stood a bit closer to the camera, but I decided to let it go, and just post this imperfect picture. 😝⁣

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW 🎉Being 30 has been okay, I mean a lot of exciting things happened like I moved in with my boyfriend and we went on an incredible holiday to Thailand together in September and November of last year. I’ve also squeezed in some fun weekends away with my friends and took a long weekend down to Cornwall. And last month I got offered a new, long awaited, role which I can’t wait to get stuck into in a couple of weeks. But, I’m hoping 31 will be REALLY good, a year where life doesn’t feel as on hold as much and I can just get back to being free and present and living with as much fun and laughter and happiness as I can 💫

I think our place might be a place that draws in our people. I love that about it. 
I hope it will draw in people we don’t yet know are ours as well as the ones we have loved a long time. 
Our heads are full right now with thoughts and dreams of the cabins we’re planning on building down by the shore. There will be two of them, they will be small but incredibly comfortable - tiny nests where people can come and be (and cry, if that’s what they need #cryingretreat). I have to admit that we’ve been panicking a little over the last week, anxious about inviting strangers into our lives, onto our land - because I don’t know if you know this about me but I’m kind of an introvert (see moving to a wind-blasted Atlantic rock). But then I remembered that some of my most favourite people are the ones who are drawn here irresistibly, at a soul-deep, isle-craving level and excitement permeated that anxiety, excitement about the people we’ve yet to meet, the people we can draw here with our tiny shore-side retreats.

china cabinets 🖤 I love getting to see what kind of pottery and glassware different women love- what patterns they are drawn to, what pieces have been handed down to them, often across generations of women serving tea and kindred-ship to one another. most of the pieces my mama and I collect are english bone china from consignment stores and antique malls. tea things are an absolute necessity to every home. do you agree?

Dreary mountains, warm rain. Chants of gnomes beneath the earth, lay and watch the changing seasons. From flower pods and tree branches, they slumber in owl tufts and badger nests. 🦉 The gold flecks of autumn pouring from sun rays, crisping the leaves as they dance onto the forest floor. Pixies dance in pools of rock water and tree sap, their lamps illuminating paths for creatures of the night, dreaming of tea leaves and acorn soup. ☕✨

‘Wizard of Oz’ is one of those sneaky bubblegum dahlias that’s softening my icy heart towards pink. Yesterday I raffled off gifted to me pink golf tees during the Friday Raffle as I refuse to use anything pink when playing golf. The students started giving me guff and asking me why. Even though it’s obvious to me I had to think a moment before responding, “It infuriates me that society makes my sporting equipment pink because I’m female. It’s a slap in the face.” They zipped it after that response and also no one claimed the pink tees—way to go girls! It’s been a hot week and we were supposed to receive rain yesterday. We did not. No rain in the forecast either so out with the hose I suppose.

What a charming little wilderness hut with the Hansel and Gretel -rug on the wall just highlighting it's fairytale-like atmosphere.
.
Would you be up for a few nights spent in a rustic cabin like this, situated pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with a wood-burning stove for heating and a lakeside sauna for washing, but no electricity or running water? 🙂

‘I sit outdoors overlooking the vastness of sea ahead. While continents of people exist on this ship, strangely I am still able to find solitude. Steaming tea is a welcome sight after hours in the arctic circle. Looking out onto ocean is immeasurable; waves crash against one another while sunlight skips playfully over the surface. I feel as if I am in some sort of dream, but then I remember.... this is travel.’ - Roxanna (journal entry, 1 September 2019)

Beachy Head looking glorious in the sunshine earlier this week. We spent a very happy day of our staycation exploring this area and even managed to get down on to the beach by the lighthouse. It felt so magical and was lovely and quiet - we had the beach entirely to ourselves apart from a naked elderly gentleman who emerged from the sea as I was busy photographing 🙈 Once we climbed back up the cliffs for this view we were joined by coach loads of tourists - but it was still beautiful. The colour of the sea was quite incredible.... Looks like we’re all set for a sunshiney summery weekend here in the South of the UK - enjoy! ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

My favourite flowers are still out in abundance. Echinacea, dahlias and anemones are all in bloom. What are your favourite autumn flowers?
