Lockdown ♡

A posy of quickly foraged flowers from the garden to save them from the wind brings a bit of cheer to our mantlepiece.

Who could have predicted that 2020 would be the year that it is?

We have been in lockdown since March with stringent lockdown measures, bans and curfews.  Our family has managed to stay productive, thankfully, but these difficult times are far from over.

As a distraction I'm finally updating the blog with pics from now, as well as simpler times.

I've taught myself to crochet Granny Squares and have made a lovely keepsake blankie in jewel colours (made mostly from scraps as stocks are low) inspired by one of my Mother's beautiful paintings.

Update:  My latest blanket, in complementary colours, incorporating knitting from 3 generations:

Enchanted Garden ♡

Papaver Somniferum Lauren's Grape

I visited the most extraordinary enchanted garden yesterday.   A photographer's visual feast.
Feeling massively inspired.  To paint.  Garden.  Wallow in images of purple flowers.

Divine one pot planting to large scale landscaping.  A living canvas.

Chillaxing memories.

Cape Town Life ♡

Food porn at Foxcroft Restaurant in Constantia, Cape Town.
Beautiful and good enough to eat.

So many gorgeous things to appreciate nearby too.

Like the architecture of Bosjes Chapel near Worcester.

Spinach pancake with hollandaise at Betty Blue in Hermanus.

You can even catch some wildlife.
Like an arty Rhino at the V&A Waterfront with Table Mountain in the background.

Something for everyone, we are spoilt for choice.
