Hi folks. As usual, here is a small selection of nice things found on the internet this week. Hope you have wonderful weekends. Tomorrow I am hopefully visiting the London Wetland Centre – I have my fingers crossed for some sun!
The best forests and woodlands
About a farm: Ben Pentreath’s blog is an utter joy. This post is about the beauty of farm dereliction.
Nursery dinner party by Kinfolk at Terrain, in Philadelphia. Beautiful photographs by Partker Fitzgerald.
Drying herbs by Amy Merrick
The love of heirloom pumpkins on Fig & Fauna.
Beautiful autumnal photographs on Wellies & Vogue
Jekka McVicar: Keeper of the Herboretum, a profile on the Oxonian Gardener blog (oh, I want to be Jekka McVicar when I grow up)
Taken at the Alcázar in Seville
Gosh it is dark outside. I can’t believe that last week we were in Seville, where it was 33 c and glorious. I have to say that I feel slightly more comfortable with the onset of winter having had that sunny break, however.
As usual, here are this week’s finds:
Great set and styling of Alela Diane by Swanfield Boutique
On Design Sponge, Decorating your Doorstep and If you’re waiting for a sign
Todd Selby previews his new book, Edible Selby, featuring photographs of the gardens, homes and kitchens of inspiring culinary folk
You say tomato, I say tomato, a tale of a bountiful crop
A visit to the Somerset Cider Brandy Co., on Gardenista
I couldn’t make it to the RHS London Harvest Festival as we were in Seville, but the Guardian have some lovely photographs of the spoils
Also on the Guardian, why leaving seedheads is good for winter wildlife
A photo series on East New York Farms on the NY Times
Have a GREAT weekend!
I have bundles of photographs from our Seville trip to go through and I am flat out with work, but I loved this one too much to wait. It was taken in the grounds of the Andalusia Contemporary Art Centre on a super hot and sunny national holiday. Strangely the entire place was dead… a complete contrast to the Tate Modern on a bank holiday Monday! Might be something to do with the weather…
