French picnics

The journey to our home in France takes about nine hours from Calais and we make regular stops for mini picnics – crusty bread, chunks of brie, boiled eggs and coleslaw.  French motor ways have lovely parking areas, where you can picnic and stop for a nap if you want before pushing on.  This one… Continue reading French picnics

Blackheath wildflowers

Blackheath near Greenwich, in London, is a broad expanse of common land where the locals walk, fly kites, and take their dogs for exercise.  Running all along the edge of the road that cuts through, leading to Shooters Hill are wildflowers, a crazy mixture of bright pinks, purples and lemon yellows. Every couple of years they mow them… Continue reading Blackheath wildflowers

We have a house there and the town is surrounded by mountains.  With forests, wild flower meadows and up in the Transylvanian Alps a more dramatic landscape to… Continue reading Carpathian meadows

Flowers for interiors

Sometimes you  go through an afternoons photo shoot and you see an image that you know will work for an interior.  I love graphic art and with a small tweak an image can take on a whole new look, perfect for adding colour to a room or where you might want a picture for a bare wall,… Continue reading Flowers for interiors

The Barn

The Barn and The Boys

What could be better than fulfilling a wish you have had for as long as you can remember – to buy a barn in France, with a garden, surrounded by fields with cows grazing and town nearby to get your daily fix of French stick loafs. We chose a very rural part of France, the… Continue reading The Barn and The Boys
