If I close my eyes and count to ten when I open them it will be spring... . Channelling the goddess of the spring (Persephone Ostara Proserpina...take your pick) with a crown of yellow tulips and narcissi and adopting a self-portrait tip from @kutovakika - cover your face. I think I could get used to being in the frame this way. . A few weeks ago I shared some blog posts which Id found inspiring. I still havent found time to put them into practice - just one reason why the longer lighter…

The Queen of Hearts: She made some tarts: All on a summer's day; The Knave of Hearts: He stole those tarts And took them clean away. . In this case the tarts were made - with love - for the person who ended up eating most of them (or rather licking out the jam and then leaving the rest of the biscuits on the table) so stealing is probably too strong a word - even if we were supposed to wait until Valentines Day. #whpwithlove . But I love the iconography of the Queen of Hearts especially in…

Happy first of February! I for one am very happy that January is over. There are lots of #petalsinprettyrings in my feed today many with the name of the new month spelled out in beautiful script a la @humphreyandgrace. Having so far failed to learn calligraphy (one of my tentative new years resolutions) here is my wreath without words. . . . . #rsa_ladies #tv_living #onmytable #global_ladies #click_vision #dsfloral #still_life_gallery #momentsofmine #storyofmytable #stylingtheseasons…

Is anyone else late writing thank you letters? Im not usually this bad but this year Ive still got several left to write. . This one isnt for Christmas presents; its to @wearetea for the beautiful selection of teas theyve just sent me. The tea in my @kewgardens mug is one of my favourites from the range so far ceylon tea with vanilla. . #homeisacupoftea #teaandseasons #petalsandprops #naughtyteas #handwriting #togetherweletter #handwritten #dailydoseofpaper #momentsofmine #writing…

Over on my stories today Im sharing some of the (many) accounts who inspire me for #followfriday. This picture was inspired by one of the accounts there @jannelford. At one of her floral workshops with @edenblooms last year the goody bag included a postcard of some ranunculus in a zinc vase with a pair of bonsai scissors lying next to them. The postcard has been on my fridge ever since and when I got some ranunculus I decided to try to recreate it. This process always makes me realise how…

Alice came upon a low curtain she had not noticed before and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the little golden key in the lock and to her great delight it fitted! . This week Ive been mostly inspired by Alice in Wonderland and my new dip pen with gold ink. And flowers and sunlight the days slowing lengthening as spring unfurls. . I wanted to share a couple of articles which had inspired me too - neither of them new but both stumbled upon this week. First a 16…

Roses are red Ranunculus pink (Or maybe theyre cream -  What do you think?) . The shops are full of roses today - single roses small bouquets enormous armful bouquets - for Valentines Day tomorrow. Mostly red (for enduring passion and true love) but also pink (which I always thought was a symbol of hopeful love but apparently also means admiration grace and joy). . Do you have a favourite rose or a favourite flower? Ive been fascinated seeing all the beautiful varieties available from places…

Edward is obsessed with nursery rhymes at the moment and goes round singing or reciting them all the time or asking us to sing them to him. This @usborne_books illustrated nursery rhyme book is one he often asks for at bedtime - all 120 pages of it. I like it for its lovely illustrations and because it has so many rhymes some very familiar some distantly remembered from childhood and some Im sure Ive never heard before. And last night as he was drifting off to sleep I could hear him singing…

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. . Was anyone else on Twitter last night for #theinstachat run by @me_and_orla? Im not very good at Twitter - it seems to require more snark and wit than I possess - but make an exception for this monthly conversation about all things Instagram. Last night was one of my favourites so far all about Instagram trends the advantages and disadvantages of following the crowd and what the next big things would be - more of the photoshop and magical realism trend?…

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. . Dale Carnegie . I will always remember something my tutor said in my final year of university. He compared the university experience to Alices Adventures in Wonderland - glimpsing a beautiful garden and believing that everything would be lovely if only she…

Back by popular demand (well a few vaguely encouraging comments) the @flyingtigeruk fish vase - this time in green with the last few stems of my Valentines bouquet. .

Do you ever get a feeling of déja vu on Instagram? In this case youve almost certainly seen it before if youve been following me - its my favourite pink fish vases again with some champagne blush ranunculus.. . Sometimes I wish I had a more extensive selection of little vases and glass bottles - I love the way that an eclectic mix of them looks and keep meaning to spend more time in vintage shops collecting pretty things to style my flowers with. .

On your marks for the 4m floral relay...get set...go! . Edward thinks of photographs as a game - whats the minimum amount of time he can stay still for while still technically granting my request to stand there for a moment. But he really wants to be on the move. Here he was clutching his sprig of babys breath like a relay racers baton poised to race towards me. . #whpmoveit .
