Halfway through a year of my #projectlove photography project! It doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing it for six months – the time has absolutely flown by.
When I look back over all the images I’ve posted so far I’m reminded of so many special moments. Not necessarily big, important occasions. Just small, ordinary moments of love being shared, both into the world and closer to home.
This week’s post is all about something I personally love – flowers! I feel happy when I have a beautiful bunch of flowers brightening up my kitchen windowsill. I love it when my husband buys me flowers (hint, hint!). And I really enjoy our family day trips to stately homes and National Trust properties that have gorgeous gardens to explore. I’ve been tempted for a while now to treat myself to a monthly subscription to something like the lovely Grace and Bloom, whom I met a few weeks ago at Blogtacular.
It’s a little dream of mine to one day have a beautiful garden of my own to spend time in, that I’ve created and tended to myself. I can’t quite explain it as I haven’t really figured it out myself yet – it’s something to do with the colours and textures and shapes I think. I just feel better when I’m surrounded by pretty things. And as superficial as that might seem, there’s something deeper there too.
I found this stunner at Arley Hall and Gardens on our visit there today. I have no idea what type of flower it is, but the colours reminded me of a sunset (something else I love!) and I had to capture it on camera in all it’s glory. Isn’t she spectacular?
