Happy National Poetry Day!


Welcome to my Art Studio

I’m so excited to have my own home garden Art Studio. I think my husband is happy to see my art equipment leave the house and enjoys visiting me making art. When he’s having a brwak from gardening or from working in his greenhouse, we chat about the day’s progress over a cup of tea or Gin and Tonic! 

Pop over to my Lavender Moon Girl’s Tales from Brown Hare Cottage wp blog for more photos. 


Tallow rays

The misty morn peels,

Revealing sentinels of wintery fields.

Tallow rays, like a sweet mead glaze

Healing: a warming haze.

Treading through the meadow, footsteps as light as a fae,

Amazingly, brightening the day,

A pretty, pixie flower called sweet violet

Appears alone, shielded by the sleeping hedgerow

And wrapped with ivy and bay.


Floral Thursday: Lofty Lavender

2014-06-29 13.08.34-1_1

Lofty Lavender,

Softly wafting.

A procession of

Purple pinnacles.




Forgive me for my lack of posts just lately, my mum isn’t very well and although I find my walks very relaxing, sometimes I feel too tired to post. 🙂 I took this photograph in a beautiful garden in Benington in Hertfordshire, I loved the procession of lavender and the sculpture through the archway.

Daisy faze

Daisy faze

Daisy faze,
Lost in a dusty,
Citrus, hazy
Painterly dainty dots in
Crisp linen rays.
Twisting twizzles,
Popping mops like
Fizzling sherbet




My son gets married on Saturday, so as you can imagine I’ll be very busy over the next couple of days! So I’ve taken a quiet moment, while my dogs lie asleep to reflect on a few beautiful moments of spring. My son is getting married to a lovely Scottish girl in Edinburgh. The celebration is to be held at a Scottish country home and estate, so I hope to be capturing the essence of that beautiful day and location and share it with you next week.

Foxglove Finials


Foxglove Finials


Foxglove finials,
Turrets towering
Over Cowparsley
Campion lamps
Shine over
Fae folk feet.

Foxgloves are also called ‘Fairy petticoats’ and ‘Fairy thimbles’. There are three symbolic meanings of this beautiful wild flower: insincerity, youth and a wish. I see them everywhere on my walks decorating the borders along fields. Often as I get closer, a baby rabbit peeps its head out and leaps about amongst the grasses and flowers.

Lyrical Lilac


Lyrical Lilac

Lilac lyrically
Soothes the
Humble Bumble,
Busily mumbling
And tumbling
In a jumbled
Shoal of sherbet,
Elfin confectionery.
Lilac starlets
For Fairy Queen’s

Folklore describes the lilac tree as bringing peace and harmony. It represents spring having arrived and draws protective spirits into our lives. The lilac is buzzing with nature spirits where music is always being played bringing harmony into our lives.

First blustery blossom


First blustery

First blossom,
Blustery mornings
Like freshly
Laundered linen.
Fairy bride’s millinery,
Glowing with
Knowing fragility
Sewing silver
Bethrothed heads,
Of March,
They be wed.

Floral Thursday: Flowers forever


Flowers forever,
Sun smiling,
Earth warming,
Beautiful flowers,
Elegantly emerging.
Naturally perfect,
Hues to woo,
Sensual synergy,
Serene and inspired!
