A study in pink ♡ Lupins truly are so beautiful- I've been revelling in all the many different colour combinations of the plants I was gifted last year - each one a surprise ♡ But my goodness they are hard work! The slugs and snails have been feasting on them, lots of them are covered in green fly, they seem to have a persistent problem with mildew and they are such thirsty beasts! I think I might have to downsize my collection.... Any top tips for caring for Lupins in pots would be gratefully received - especially how to get rid of green fly naturally. I've tried blasting them with water but that doesn't work for long.... Maybe I need to encourage more wildlife in the garden.... Happy Floral Friday folks!

I don't think I've ever been more grateful to wake up to grey skies and cool weather! I might actually be able to get some work done today.... And completely unrelated, but I thought you might like a few more peonies before the month is out :) Happy cool Thursday folks! (and as I type this the thunder is rumbling and we have some rain - the garden is soooo grateful!)

Happy summer solstice folks! I'm cooling down by looking at these amazing waves from my visit to Jersey earlier this year - they were crashing over the sea wall and were just so energising and awe inspiring..... Enjoy all the lovely light today and keep cool - it certainly feels like the middle of summer!

Blimey it's positively tropical out there! 🌴🌴🌴Hard to believe we're in the U.K. - I'm not built for this heat - melting over here.... And my poor flowers are wilting just like me - watering duty's a pretty major undertaking at the moment! Hope you're all managing to stay cool 🌸💗🌸💗🌸 Thanks so much for my tropical #happysocks @happysocks 🌴🌴🌴 #happinesseverywhere .

Morning folks! Have you joined in with #mynestandburrow yet? Just a little reminder that there's a gorgeous wall hanging by the super talented @nestandburrowuk to be won.
::
::
To join in, simply share a photo of a favourite space or little pocket of your home that has been inspired by nature or natural materials and light and tag it with #mynestandburrow and make sure you are following Suzanne @nestandburrowuk and myself @zoepower ♡ You have until 06 July when I'll be choosing my favourite image to win a wall hanging from Suzanne's upcoming collection.
::
::
We're almost at the longest day of the year here in the U.K. so it's the ideal time to take advantage of all this amazing light ♡ ::
::
Pictured here is a little snippet of my bedroom - you can find more photos on my blog, along with more info about the competition and Suzanne's beautiful wall hangings.
::
:: Have a wonderful day and keep cool! The paddling pool has been deployed here - ostensibly for @mistybythesea but we can't persuade her to get in!

It's another scorcher out there - hope you're all keeping cool folks ♡ I've been having a little play with my lovely new backdrop from @capturebylucy - part of the new collaboration with @kimklassen - this is the blush one and it's gorgeous! I have a feeling you're going to be seeing a lot more of this in my feed :) And I'm so happy that my Hydrangeas are blooming - they're called Endless Summer, so I'm hoping for blooms all summer long :) 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 Oh and the beautiful little ceramic bowls are by @ceramicmagpie - much treasured and much photographed:) Happy new week lovely people!

We're dashing off to see family today - look forward to a lovely catch-up with you all when we're back. Have a lovely sunny Sunday ☀️☀️☀️

My gorgeous @jessicazoobart print has arrived that I won in the @lewesmapstore giveaway and I'm thrilled to bits with it! Thank you so, so much Jessica and Dörte! I was lucky enough to be able to choose which print I wanted and my heart led me to this painting, which I fell in love with the first time we visited Jessica's beautiful studio. I adore everything about it 💗💗💗 Now to find the right frame and decide where to hang it..... Wishing you all a lovely Saturday folks - and enjoy the sunshine if you're in the UK - looks set to be a proper summer weekend {we'll be building IKEA furniture 🙈}

More peonies, sorry! But they're all gone now and this is the first time my gorgeous Sarah Bernhardt ones have flowered, so I just *had* to capture their beauty. It's so nice to have a record of everything that's bloomed in the garden - keeps me going over winter when everything is brown and bare ♡ Wishing you all a lovely Thursday!

A little corner of my office with the light streaming in yesterday. This desk is where I do most of my photography, my lettering and sewing and I absolutely love it. It also has the tendency to become a bit of a dumping ground.....what you can't see in this photo is the overflowing shelves behind me and the piles on the floor....something I need to tackle and find a solution for next! So this is my #ikearoomrefresh entry for @91magazine and @ikeauk (a brilliant competition to win a £250 gift card for IKEA). ::
::
And also, a chance to remind you to join in with #mynestandburrow  and share your favourite spaces and pockets of your home and the magic of light within them for a chance to win a beautiful wall hanging by the lovely @nestandburrowuk - see Suzanne's @nestandburrowuk latest post for more info (and you can also find all the info on my blog). Have a lovely Wednesday folks and enjoy this glorious sunshine!
