THREE THINGS ON MY MIND

London based brand Meadows have some lovely new things in their range. They do the romantic prairie look really well – always with an East London cool girl twist.

At the moment they have a pop up shop in Redchurch Street which looks totally gorgeous. I really hope I will get the chance to visit the store when everything settles down.

Perhaps it seems superficial to be thinking about clothes right now with everything that is going on in the world, but there is no harm in looking at the pictures. And if you fall in love with any of the pieces, investing in something from a small brand with strong ethics could be a good deed which makes a difference to someone at a time when the retail sector is in real trouble.

Pressed flowers and herbariums are clearly a thing at the moment but how about pressing seaweed? Coastal Journal posted these images the other day and I thought it was such a nice, simple idea.

Next time I am by the sea I will definitely forage for some seaweed and have a try. A perfect project to do with kids as well I think.

Love the graphic quality of the seaweed, it has more of a visual presence than flowers which tend to loose colour and volume when pressed.

I am increasingly liking the idea of a plant theatre to showcase not just auriculas but any small spring flowering bulbs. By raising them to eye level you can get up close and have a proper look at them. This one is at Sissinghurst and I like the size and simplicity of it. I have a large unattractive brick wall with nothing on it my garden, and mother’s day is coming up very soon…just saying!
