  • Don’t miss this wonderful little exhibition of work by Édouard Vuillard at the @holburnemuseumbath . Gorgeous little paintings of scenes of everyday life. These are my favourites, I love the way he paints textiles. Must get back to the easel. 
It’s on until September. 
Vuillard was one of the leading figures in French art at the end of the 19th-century. Famed for his small, subtle studies mostly of figures in interiors, his art is renowned for its modest scale, intimate subject matter and intense colouring. We celebrate the unique qualities of his early work, from the 1890s, in which he balanced an obsession with patterned fabrics and wallpaper with subtle, domestic psycho-dramas to create paintings with striking emotional intensity.

  • It’s been a long wait from bud to short lived flower but so worth it. Scroll to the glorious last photo. Magnolia × wieseneri. So beautiful. #beautiful #bud #magnolia #beautyinnature🍃 #symmetry #floweroftheday #flowerphotography #englishcountrygarden #worththewait
  • The bumblebees are loving this knautia arvensis. They have dried out from the deluge and are refuelling. I hope they don’t get motion sickness. #bumblebee #bumblebeemovie #knautia #plantsforbees #pollinators #motion #nature #insectsofinstagram #gardening #englishcountrygarden #wildlife #gardeningforwildlife #flowerphotography #aftertherain #windy

  • Don't know why I like these funny roscoea cautleoides so much but I do. They pop up for a couple of weeks every year in a pot and then I put it back in the greenhouse. 
I visited the fabulous private gardens at Rockcliffe today for their @nationalgardenscheme opening. Truly inspirational. Unfortunately I dropped my phone in the long grass so no photos to show. Go in 2020 if they open. #rockcliffegardens #gardenvisit #roscoea #cotswolds #flowerphotography #gardendesign #inspiration #gardenvisitor #englishcountrygarden #floweroftheday
  • Flaming June? I think not. Everything has been battered by the wind and rain, but there are still lovely flowers to come. #peony #clematis #rain #wetweather #garden #greyday #flowerphotography #flowersofinstagram #peonies #englishcountrygarden #wiltshire #buds #floweroftheday #flowers #view #countryside #england #raindrops

  • Started appreciating meadows very early. Always been a gardener (with dubious fashion sense). #meadows #buttercups #gardener #startearly #chubbycheeks #headscarf #spotthedog #nature #meadow #wildflowers #naturelovers #gardening #grasses
