My home grown anemones









Still life inspiration with meadowsweet (the plant I got to know this summer and became a little obsessed with)









Afternoon coffee with a book I love 









An evening dog walk in the local park, Gotts Park









The book from which I got a much needed inspiration from and to which I owe the start of this project. Thank you Laura Pashby
