Happy new week everyone 🐦 I hear Spring is definitely on its way this week. The changing seasons are always so inspiring creativity wise so thought I’d celebrate with a little flatlay with all the spring flowers popping up. I haven’t done one of these in so long I’d almost forgotten how 🙈

“That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic—being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me—the Magic is in me.” Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden 🌼 Every day there seems to be more Spring magic in our garden. The azaleas are about to burst forth and the rosemary bushes even have little lavender flowers on their tips. If you’re in colder climates, your Spring is coming - hang in there! Happy Monday and have a great start to your week!

Lightly, O lightly we bear her along,  She sways like a flower in the wind of our song;  She skims like a bird on the foam of a stream,  She floats like a laugh from the lips of a dream.  Gaily, O gaily we glide and we sing,  We bear her along like a pearl on a string. ~Naidu . . . #booksofinstagram#beautifulbooks#bookstagram#booknerd#booklove#bookstagramfeature#readersofinstagram#bookstagramfeatures#prettybooks#booksiread#mybookishfeatures#bookishfeatures#coverlove#thereaderslounge#messyfeedsfairytales#igbooks#prettybooks#bookstoread#bookflatlay#kimmersbooks#booksandbotanicals#booksandflowers#booksandfeathers#victorianpoetry#penguinbooks#penguinclassics#readmorewomen

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” 🌸 I was looking for a book in my bookcase when I spied my childhood copy of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I plucked it out and have been reading it intermittently. It’s been a long time so I’d forgotten how full of wisdom it is, some related to gardens, but most to attitude and life. If you follow me, you may read a few more quotes in the near future! 🌸 In keeping with what I am reading, I wanted to make “A Secret Garden” hoop with imaginary flower varieties 🌸 Happy Sunday and The Luck of the Irish to you too! ☘️☘️☘️

Wishing you a very happy St Patrick's Day☘ 🇮🇪 . Three reasons why this day is special to me (in no particular order): . 1. I am approximately 1/8 Irish, and I grew up with Irish songs being sang at family parties. This means that I am always a little bit homesick for Ireland, even though I've never actually lived there. . 2. St Patrick was an inspiring man with a life story that sounds like an epic novel. Kidnapped and enslaved by Irish pirates as a boy, he then escaped and eventually returned to Ireland to convert the whole country to a Christian way of life . . 3. As a small child I was told by someone that if you don't wear some green on March 17th, at some point in the day a leprechaun will sneak up behind you and pinch your bottom. This has stayed with me and I have passed the message down to my own children ☘ . . #stpatricksday#watchoutforleprechauns#faithandflorals

During my corporate life, I used to travel every week for work. Sometimes a new city every week, sometimes 2-3 cities per week, dealing with flights and ubers and living out of my suitcase. But amongst that busy lifestyle, the one thing I was really good at was packing light and having everything I needed (even an extra outfit for emergencies). I had work out clothes, heels and running shoes, all in that one tiny cabin bag. Now two years and two babies later, it is as if I have completely forgotten that part of my life. Of course, now, packing light is all out the window. There are diapers, a million onesies, sleep n plays (best invention for babies ever!!!), formula, toys, etc etc etc. Honestly, it is as if we never have enough things for them on the road. I don’t know if it is just me who has become an inefficient packer when it comes to my babies or everyone goes through this dilemma. Wish me luck for today my goal is to finish our packing in an hour for our upcoming weekend trip. Do you have any tips for packing light and traveling with babies? . . . . . #justbefloral#stylingtheseasons#curated_nature#dsfloral#floralstyling#inspiredbynature_#thebotanicalseries#astilllifestyle#wildforflowers#booksandbotanicals#whpflowerpower#florallife#momentsofmine#mymomentswithflowers#inspiredbypetals#womencreatives

March 14, 2019 // Thank you @aaknopf for providing my review copy of THE RIVER. We went for a hike yesterday (gorgeous!) and I had to take a photo with my current read in a very appropriate spot, haha! I started THE RIVER last night and it’s very interesting. That’s really the best word that I have for it so far. I’m incredibly curious to see what happens, and there is a definite build to the unraveling of a mystery, but the writing is challenging for me. I think that people who like very literary and speculative narratives will love this one! But I’ll update more as I continue to read. I’m hoping to really love it. How far do you get into a book before you know you will love it or hate it? Do you DNF books easily? I usually give it till halfway before I’ll DNF, but sometimes I’ve done it sooner and later. Sometimes I can tell I just have to keep reading to really love something, so I’ve been very pleasantly surprised before. But everyone has different rules, so tell me what yours are down below!

I'm done with the 2nd book for #femmemarchfest yayayy. It's an extremely slow reading month. 🙍 📖 PERSUASION by JANE AUSTEN 🌌 *Blurb* 📚 Persuasion is the last novel of Jane Austen. It starts with a short history of the Elliot family. Sir Walter Elliot is vain and stupid. He is also a widower and has three daughters - Elizabeth, Anne and Mary. The youngest, Mary is married to a rich man and she's always complaining. Elizabeth is shadow of her father and looks down upon her sister Anne. She's 'only Anne' to them. They don't care that only she has two brain cells to rub together in their family (but they're idiots so that is expected). Anne is 27 years old and single. She was engaged to Captain Wentworth 8 years ago but she broke up the engagement because her stupid father and sister were not happy with the relationship. Now 8 years later Sir Walter Elliot's overspending has led the Elliot family towards bankruptcy. It is decided that they should leave their current residence Kellynch Hall and move to Bath where expenses will be more manageable. Kellynch Hall is to be let and the tenants are none other than Captain Wentworth's sister and her husband. The romantic tale takes many different turns - happy, sad, and shocking. 📔 So now the question you want answered is - "Whether Captain Wentworth and Anne get back together ?" 📖 Nope, I'm not telling you 😈. You gotta read it to find out. But but I want to tell you Captain Wentworth is my second favourite fictional hero now. First is still Mr. Darcy 😍😍😍 I have always loved Austen's writing and she didn't disappoint. It was good to know that she died with her sass level not dropping at all. Happy reading!! #betterreadschallenge 72/365 #readingnottrending

My friend @helenwarnerphotography told me yesterday that we needed books to raise flowers up for our workshop. She said they always photograph better raised up. I wasn’t sure I had a single suitable book and then I remembered my little pile of Beatrix Potter books from my childhood which I loved and read at least a million times each. Consequently, very, very well thumbed but very precious non the less because they came from my great aunts, I really felt they were too dear to me to risk getting water on. But then I gave it a go and my goodness Helen was right! The perfect little books that are embedded with childhood memories - a place where all my flowery notions began!

‘Now a few yards further, and I reach the bank. Ah! I smell them already — their exquisite perfume steams and lingers in this moist heavy air. Through this little gate, and along the green south bank of this green wheatfield, and they burst upon me, the lovely violets, in tenfold loveliness! The ground is covered with them, white and purple, enamelling the short dewy grass, looking but the more vividly coloured under the dull, leaden sky.’ — Mary Russell Mitford. * * * Another book that was completely unknown to me (how?) until I was lucky enough to stumble upon this good-as-new secondhand copy of the Folio Society edition, with its marvellous marbled cover. The essays are short in length but rich in detail; first-hand accounts of life in and around an English village almost exactly two hundred years ago. * The weather was desperately wild here, yesterday, but this morning there are flashes of blue sky and bursts of sunlight again — enough to gather fragrant violets and primroses from the garden. (No wildflowers were harmed in the making of this post.) * * * * * #OurVillage#MaryRussellMitford#thewildinwords#seasonalreading#wildflowerwednesday#simplemoments#booksandbotanicals#comfortinbooks#thegentlebookcase#ardentlyauthentic#mybookfilledlife#bookstagram

Good morning lovelies! 🌞 A little midweek spring message for you...💚 I'm so happy that the onset of winter has come to an end...😄 With the exception of the wind and still cool temperatures we had lovely weather yesterday and I worked a lot in my garden. So many things to do now! This is the season in which I usually start to feel a bit overwhelmed by all the garden projects I have in my mind...😌😅 My to do list seems endless....planting and pruning of roses, potting of my dahlias 🌿🌸, sowing of vegetables and summerflowers... 🌱🙌🌱🙌🌱🙌🌱 Do you you know this feeling when you would like to have 10 hands to do everything? I think I will start with the most important thing....a cup of coffee..☕💕😊😂 #myfloralpoetry#booksandbotanicals . . .

Ich glaube ich fange mal mit dem Allerwichtigsten an...mit einer entspannte Tasse Kaffee...oder zwei...☕💕😂 . . . #flowersandotherstories#countrydecor#seasonspoetry#myseasonalstory#poetryofsimplethings#slowsimpleseasonal#createinspring#cherishandrelish_march#heitermoments#country_stilllife#stilllife_perfection#still_life_gallery#tv_fadingbeauty#floralflatlay#stylingmycreativity#floral_faffery#creative_member#antique_r_us#jj_still_life#9vaga_shabbysoft9#curated_nature#tv_neatly#thebotanicalseries#my_creative_square#styleonstillness#inspiredbypetals#simplystyledflowers#natureonthepage

What were your last purchases at a used bookstore? . I found these beauties at an indie book shop specializing in niche literature. There was an entire section of literature by Latino authors; something I was just complaining to my boyfriend the other day! . My mom is mexican, so I grew up with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Pablo Neruda, and Quino. But I always thought the big-chain bookstores never had enough variety in Latino authors. Jose Saramago’s. Nobel-prize winner made it in there but none of his other work. So I was really excited to find a place supporting diversity in literature. 💜 . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram#allthebooksmarch19 (nonfiction) #flatlaystyle#booksandbotanicals#bookishfeature#booksandflowers#simplethingsmadebeautiful#bookphotographer#booksofinsta#diversereads#coverlove#ilovebooks#ilovebookstores#usedbooks#bookishflatlay#alliseeispretty#beautifulbooks

👨🏻‍🏫♥️ IL LIBRO CHE QUEL TUO INSEGNANTE TI HA FATTO AMARE ♥️👨🏻‍🏫 [English caption below! ⤵️] ⠀ 🇮🇹 "Quando Augusto si affacciò alla porta di casa stese il braccio destro con la palma in giù ed aperta, e volgendo gli occhi al cielo rimase un momento fermo in questa posizione statuaria ed augusta. Non era che prendesse possesso del mondo esteriore, osservava solamente se pioveva. E nel ricevere sul dorso della mano il fresco della lenta pioggerella, aggrottò le sopracciglia. E non era che gli desse noia la pioggerella, ma il dovere aprire l'ombrello. Era così elegante, così slanciato, piegato dentro la custodia! Un ombrello chiuso è tanto elegante quanto è brutto un ombrello aperto." ⠀ Ma buongiorno, ragazzuoli! Come state? ♥️ Oggi nessuna giornata mondiale (che io sappia 😂), ma l'incipit di "Nebbia" di Miguel de Unamuno. ⠀ È stato uno dei libri che sono stata spinta ad amare grazie alla passione di uno dei miei professori del liceo (in questo caso di lingua e letteratura spagnola). A distanza di anni, ricordo quanto ci tenesse a farci capire le intenzioni e le innovazioni dell'autore – tant'è che l'immagine dell'ombrello con cui si apre il romanzo mi è rimasta impressa fino ad oggi. ⠀ E voi? Avete un libro che avete conosciuto ed amato grazie alla passione di un/una insegnante? ♥️ ⠀ 🇬🇧 Hellooo, lovely peeps! How are you? ♥️ Today I won't talk about any World *insert word here* days 😂 I have nothing but respect for a teacher who loves his/her job and who manages to make you love what they're talking about. ⠀ One of my high school teacher was deeply passionate about his subject (Spanish and Spanish literature) and made the whole class love this book, Mist by Miguel de Unamuno. As soon as I saw it on the second hand shop's shelf, I took it home with me ♥️ ⠀ #qotd: What about you? Have you ever met a teacher that made you love a book? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The inscription on the old book (swipe for closeup) reads “To my dear Mother from Nan, January 1939”. The book title is “Song of Years” a novel by Bess Streeter Aldrich written about the period in Iowa of Indian scares, frontier living and county-seat wars, as well as the political climate preceding the Civil War. This was the original publication date for the book. It’s been reprinted many times since and has great reviews online, so one of these days maybe I’ll get around to reading it, musty smell and all 😉 An 80 year old book is entitled to be a bit musty smelling after all. . . . . . . . #antique_r_us#shared_joy#thehappynow#myeverydaymagic#aquietstyle#seekinspirecreate#collectandstyle#nothingisordinary#booksandbotanicals#vintagebooks#fauxtulips#fauxflowers#gatheredstyle#still_life_gallery#tv_living#thriftstorefinds#fleamarketfinds#vintagestyle#vintagecharm#vintagetreasures#fleamarketstyle#vintagedecor#chippylicious#trashure#shabbychicstyle

Who remembers how fun painting was as a kid!? 👩🏻‍🎨 - I recently bought a (very basic) watercolour set from Flying Tiger Copenhagen and have so far embarked on painting an apple and a flower. Neither look particularly great - but its so fun just to sit there and mix colours and play around with the paints! It’s actually felt really calming too, you just sit there and concentrate on something that isn’t a screen or anything that makes loud noises and things. I’m really enjoying it! Hopefully practice makes perfect and I’ll have something decent to share soon! 🖼 _______________________ #thisjaneaustenlife#untoldvisuals#cwt_fromabove #lovely_squares_1  #bookstagrammersunite #idratherbereading#creativityfound#magiclittlesquare#ps_magic #ps_storybook#allkindsofmagic #make_more_magic#livemoremagic#ps_glow #tv_editz #discoveredit#mymomentwithflowers #flashesofdelight #flowersandotherstories#booksandbotanicals#stillswithstories  #the_gentle_manifesto #searchwondercollect#allbeauty_addiction#picturetokeep_nature #the_gallery_of_magic #whpflowerpower#petal_perfection #naturehippys_ #bella_shots

• about me • I am an open book. 📖 Aged and rough around the edges. Dog-eared pages hold my past, and predict my future. My spine is old; the stitching, in certain places, is barely held together. My gilded cover is cracked and worn. (If you were a novel, what kind would you be? A mystery, a romance, a bestseller?) #fms_aboutme#fms_rogue#book#perfectlyimperfect#aged#bookstagram#oldbook#flowers#mumstheword#chasinglight#booksandbotanicals#faffingwithflowers#lovely_squares_1#thislittlemoment_#nothingisordinary#heartful_moments#hiyapapayaphotoaday#raw_collage#_thislovelylife_#embraceeverydayjoyfully#miracles_noblesse#windowlight#patterns_in_nature#macro#macrophotography#flowersofinstagram#moodygram#ihateautocorrect

The sharp eyed amongst you may spot that my Edith Holden book is open to February... do I claim to not know what month it is or do I confess that this is an old shot still sitting on my camera roll 🤔? You guys decide 😆 I’m hoping I’ll get some new photos taken later this week otherwise I’ll be wheeling out my unused festive photos next 🤣 do you batch shoot your photos or are you a spur of the moment snapper? 📚 I like to batch shoot when I get still life or bookish photos set up, once I get into the groove they seem to flow quite well and then I have a ton of photos that I can use as & when that just need an edit. It makes posting daily so much easier! 💛 And of course, living somewhere as beautiful as Oxford helps too, I often take snaps whilst I’m out and about to share here. Photography helps remind me just how beautiful this city is! 📷 Right, I’m off to get ready for work, I’ve a long day ahead of me, happy Monday peeps 😘 • • • • • #mybeigelife#natureonthepage#ccseasonal#booksandbotanicals#stilllifeisreallife#foreverflatlay#simpleandstill#foreverfaffing#booksandtea#teaandbooks#cupsinframe#vscobook#morningslikethis#botanicaldreamers#flatlaystyle#yellowisitmeyourelookingfor#dsfloral#handinframe#calmversation#alifeofintention#loveliest4#persuepretty#quietchaotics#ofsimplethings#ofquietmoments#cs_edithholdenyear#myeverydaymagic#bookfeaturepage#smallmomentsofcalm

Listening to the rain on the skylight this morning makes picking flowers at the allotment again seem a long way off. We've had all weathers this weekend! But I can't wait, lots of planning has been done, there's lots to order and even more to do before anything can be planted but I'm so excited for another year of growing! 🌿🌸🌿 What did you get up to at the weekend?

A floral book feast to celebrate botanical women of the past and present. I’m fascinated by early plant discoverers and artists such as Marianne North or Maria Merian, mesmerised as a child by Cicely Mary Barker’s flower fairies, have a growing collection of books which are illustrated nature diaries (including here Edith Holden (1871-1920), Celia Lewis, Margaret Erskine Wilson and Janet Marsh, dig and plant while dreaming of gardens by Gertrude Jekyll or Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst and adore new botanical art such as the books by @helenahpornsiri or @katiekatiescott and inspired by the flowers of @janeflowerjane#whpsheinspiresme Who are some of your favourite botanical women? #booksandbotanicals
